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.
