* A 17-year-old Spicer boy was arraigned Monday on felony level charges for allegedly blowing up several homemade bombs in his parents' backyard.
Michael Patrick Holden faces a felony charge for possessing explosive or incendiary devices after the December incident. He was released on his own recognizance after his court appearance Monday.
The information is public when teens age 16 or over are charged with felonies.
Charges were filed against Holden after several explosions were reportedly heard around 4:25 p.m. Dec. 15 in the Woodcock addition in Spicer.
A Minnesota State Patrol trooper responded to the report. According to the complaint, another resident in the area told the trooper that the explosion occurred in the backyard at 17 Woodcock Drive. The explosion resulted in two loud booms and blue-gray mushroom clouds, the complaint stated.
The trooper reportedly found Holden along with another 17-year-old and a 16-year-old in the backyard at 17 Woodcock Drive. The group told the trooper they were setting off fireworks and apologized for the noise, the complaint states. After further questioning, Holden brought the trooper a 1-inch by 3-inch carbon dioxide container with a fuse in it, according to the complaint. The carbon dioxide container is similar to those used in air-powered paintball and BB guns, the complaint states.
Holden is scheduled to appear in court again March 21.
