Police: Student Arrested For Exploding Acid Bomb At School

WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. (AP) — Pasco County Sheriff’s deputies have arrested a 15-year-old for allegedly mixing some common household items into an acid bomb inside a soda bottle. They say he threw it into a trash can at school.

The incident happened Tuesday morning at Wesley Chapel High School.

Pasco County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Kevin Doll says the acid bomb caused a small explosion in a trash can, which led to a short lockdown of the school. There were no injuries but Doll says a staff member might have been exposed to some vapor.

Doll did not release the teen’s name due to his age. He added that the acid bomb was created with common household items.
