Kentucky Man Tries to Blow Up Police, Blows Off His Hands Instead

A man in Kentucky was arrested after a bomb he intended to use against police blew up in his hand. Louisville Police said they received a call about an explosion in a home in Mount Eden on Tuesday. When police arrived at the home, 54-year-old David Allen Blake refused to come out. Police attempted to go to a window to speak to Blake, however, he had other ideas. Blake fired two rounds at the two Sheriff’s deputies. The deputies contacted the Kentucky state police for assistance.

The Kentucky state police determined there were explosive devices in the house. A special hazardous devices team was called to the home. Shortly after, another explosion was heard. One of Blake’s home made bombs accidentally blew up in his hand. His hand was severely mutilated according to police. He was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Blake was charged with two counts of attempted murder of a police officer. He is currently being held in the Shelby County Detention Center. Devices recovered from Blake’s house are being tested in a lab. A neighbor, Michael Redmon, said he didn’t know anything about Blake, but he was glad no one was killed in the situation.

“It jarred the ground I was walking on. And my grandson was in the house and he came running out and asked what happened. And I said I think someone set a bomb off or dropped a bomb or something. I mean, it was heard for miles around here.” – Michael Redmon

I don’t think there has ever been a more appropriate time to say Thank God for saving those officers!
