An Oklahoma man stated that he forgot a pipe bomb was in his luggage when he attempted to board an airplane in Oklahoma City. Charles Alfred Dreyling Jr. claimed the bomb was built for fun, but not meant to join him on his plane trip.
He was released Thursday on $10,000 bail, and if convicted could face up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. According to his signed affidavit, the bomb could have been detonated using his cell phone battery.
Dreyling went on to say that this wasn't the first bomb he had constructed. In his affidavit Dreyling claimed he made bombs for "recreation" and had blown up several devices with his friends in rural Oklahoma.
