Last week, the first suspect in the "bottle bomb" incidents was arrested at his home in Bowie, Maryland.
According to a report from The Associated Press, a second man has been charged with two felonies related to “bottle bomb” explosions in the Washington, D.C. area.
Officials involved with the investigation state that Michael Hollingsworth, 23, was arrested on Friday for his involvement with a bottle bomb detonation on May 24 at a movie theater in Largo, Maryland.
Moviegoers were terrified when the bottle bomb went off in the theater. Once they heard the gun-like sounds, people exited the theater in a panic. No one was injured, according to local authorities.
Prince George’s County fire officials believe Hollingsworth was involved in additional attacks and will be charged accordingly.
WNEW/AP report that his felony charges of manufacture/possession/distribution of a destructive device and destructive device conspiracy could carry nearly $250,000 in fines plus a 25-year jail sentence if convicted. He is currently being held without bond.
