Man Tried to Blow Up His Foreclosed Home with Bowling Ball Bomb

Tyler Butler, 21, of Florida, was arrested on charges of arson and using an explosive device. It started Sunday night when several people called 911 and reported a house fire. A person also reported that the foreclosed home’s past owner, Butler, was inside. Deputies arrived and detained Butler after he left the burning home. As firefighters extinguished the flames, they noticed a bowling ball with what appeared to be a wick attached, according to the report. The sheriff’s office bomb squad removed the ball. Witnesses told deputies that before the fire, Butler said, “he wasn’t gonna leave the house he [used] to live in, that he would burn it down.” Butler told deputies he set things on fire in the home using a cigarette lighter, and that he poured gun powder in a bowling ball and used a rope as a fuse, deputies said.
