Guy Fowlkes Arrested in "Gunpowder Plot"

The headline makes it sound as if history is repeating itself, but this happened in Ocoee, Florida. A man was arrested for lighting fireworks at the fireworks tent in which he was working.
Guy Swindell Fowlkes, 33, of Orlando, was working at the tent at Colonial Drive and Maguire Road but had made arrangements to work at another tent location, according to an arrest affidavit filed in the case. When his girlfriend asked about keys to a storage unit, Fowlkes said he did not have the keys and began an argument with her.

Fowlkes struck his girlfriend, who is pregnant, in the left side of her face, according to the report. He then went into the tent and began to light up fireworks, directing some of them at other employees. He also lit the fuse of two firecrackers and placed them inside the gas tank of an employee's car.

As police approached, they could see explosions in the distance. Fowlkes was charged with arson and battery. Link -via Arbroath

Maybe if they torture him like they did the original they'll get him to confess to being an Islamic terrorist.

I know he isn't. But under enhanced interrogation techniques people will confess to anything. And now the USA PATRIOT Act has been autosigned into continuing, we'll be needing a bad guy to chase.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
