GRAFTON, WI (WHBL) - Grafton police report an incident involving a homemade bomb started with an argument between two groups at Lime Kiln Park Friday. A 21 year old Grafton man and a 20 year old Sheboygan man were arrested for allegedly throwing what police call a “bottle bomb” into a car. The people inside that car tossed it back out before it exploded and no one was injured. When the two suspects were stopped, they had another improvised explosive device in their car. The Milwaukee County Bomb Disposal Unit and U.S. Bureauy of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms were contacted and they were able to render the device safe.
Authorities say it's not the first time the two suspects have been engaged in this type of behavior. They reportedly were involved in a prior incident in which a homemade bomb was lit and tossed into an occuppied business in Grafton.
