Scott (“Spider”) Wegener, 55, is nothing if not unique in the annals of crime. He is accused of creating an IED using a Canadian Mist bottle, black powder and a cannon fuse. He then used the bomb to try to kill another man’s chickens. The attack was reportedly due to a disagreement over a BB gun.
A witness told police that Wegener threw the bomb into the other man’s backyard and it exploded.
This certainly does not appear in conformity with the company’s slogan “Enjoy Mist Responsibly.”
Wegener was charged with possession or discharge of a destructive device. What is interesting is that there does not appear a charge for using the device as opposed to possessing it.
