Here’s a new one for the talent competition: making IEDs and throwing them at people.
Miss Riverton, crowned in June and set to compete in the Miss Utah pageant, was arrested early Saturday morning along with her three friends after allegedly throwing homemade bombs at people and homes.
A probable cause statement released by the Salt Lake County Jail states that Miss Riverton, Kendra Gill, as well as Bryce Stone, Shanna Smith and John Reagh, admitted to buying plastic bottles, aluminum foil and household chemicals at a local store before building the bombs and throwing them from their car near 13800 South 4100 West and other Riverton neighborhoods…
“They were throwing them at both property and people,” said Unified Fire Authority Capt. Clint Mecham. “This goes well beyond a teenage prank…”
“They’re very caustic, very nasty. So they can cause injury to somebody just if the chemicals get on somebody, much less the fragmentation of the shrapnel damage that can be caused,” Mecham said. “They can very easily cause serious harm or even death.”
Fortunately nobody was hurt, but that doesn’t let these four off the hook.
Does this make young Ms. Gill a tiara-rist?
