Attempted car bomb fizzles out in Maine

Bangor Daily News (Maine)
An attempted car bombing fizzled out Monday morning after an improvised bomb found in a local man's car caught fire, but didn't explode.
The incident landed a Caribou man in jail and left a Presque Isle man saying he would be injured or dead if not for the poor bomb-making skills involved. Investigators did not give a motive for the crime, but said both men had dated the same woman.
David Holmes, 19, of Caribou remained at Aroostook County Jail in Houlton on Tuesday after he was arrested and charged Monday afternoon with arson, a Class A felony, and aggravated reckless conduct, a Class B felony.
