Angry with police, man arrested with incendiaries

RED BANK, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in the Hamilton County city of Red Bank say a man told them he was angry with them for the DUI arrest of his girlfriend.

What police found in John Lewis Mills' truck got him arrested for terrorism, possession of a prohibited weapon and driving under the influence.

WRCB-TV reported police spotted Mills backing into the parking lot of a plumbing company around 3:15 a.m. Tuesday. Officers investigated and arrested Mills for DUI. A search of his vehicle uncovered two "Molotov cocktail" incendiary devices.

Investigators said the 24-year-old Mills told them he was angry with police over his girlfriend's arrest and wanted to blow up something.

A Chattanooga Police ordnance disposal team disabled the devices.
