Alabama 12-year-old facing bomb charges

FALKVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Police say a 12-year-old Falkville Elementary School student is facing criminal charges for taking a small bomb to school.

Principal Layne Dillard says the 12-year-old says he brought the
bomb to school to show off.

Dillard says the child gave it to a classmate.

He says a teacher took the device from that child before he got on the bus to go home.

Falkville Police Chief Chris Free describes the bomb as three
fire crackers and copper wire taped together.

Free says the wire was a delay that would connect to a battery as the ignition device, and that the student did not have a battery. He says the child told authorities he did not intend to use the bomb at school.
