ROHNERT PARK, Calif. (AP) — Police say a 49-year-old man has been arrested after a homemade bomb was found on the 18th fairway of a Northern California golf course.
Rohnert Park police Sgt. Jason Krauss says the “acid bomb” capable of spraying debris across a radius of about 50 feet was found at Foxtail Golf Club.
He said maintenance workers found the device — made with a large water bottle — along with a second one that had already detonated nearby.
Krauss tells the San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1LGT2e1 ) that a bomb squad moved the explosive device to the course’s driving range and detonated it.
