One Year After the Boston Marathon Bombing, a Man Is Arrested For Leaving a Backpack With a Rice Cooker by the Finish Line
Yesterday was the one-year anniversary of the bombing at the Boston Marathon. And some MONUMENTAL JACKASS just did THIS.
A man left a BACKPACK unattended at the finish line of the Boston Marathon course. This year's Boston Marathon is on Monday.
He was barefoot, wearing a long black veil, and was screaming, "BOSTON STRONG" as he put down the backpack.
The entire area was evacuated and the bomb squad detonated the backpack. It didn't have a bomb, but DID have a rice cooker filled with confetti.
The guy is 25-year-old Kayvon Edson, and he's now in custody.
Police also detonated a second backpack that reportedly contained photo equipment and may have belonged to a member of the media. No one was hurt. (CBS 4 - Boston)
