A homemade bomb thrown into a Soldotna road almost hit a passing vehicle and its two occupants.
20-year-old Elijah Jackson and his unnamed 17-year-old partner, both of Soldotna, were arrested and held without bail for the incident on Saturday night. The pair claimed they didn’t mean to hit anything. They said they were just throwing the bottle of flammable liquid, which was lit, into Arylynn Way when a car came around the corner.
They were arrested around 8pm Saturday and taken to jail for two charges of Assault III and reckless endangerment.
