Man in Kentucky Arrested for Fake 'Collar Bomb' on Australian TeenS

One of the summer's weirdest stories—the Australian teenager who had a "collar bomb" strapped to her neck for ten hours, only to learn it was fake—took another weird turn on Monday when the first suspect arrested the case turned up in... Kentucky?

An FBI SWAT team busted 50-year-old Paul "Doug" Peters (that's a shitty nickname, Paul) at his ex-wife's house outside Louisville on Monday afternoon. Peters, an Australian businessman, had apparently fled there from Australia a few days after the attack, before police had begun to suspect his involvement. There's no word on motive, and police aren't looking for anyone else.

He has a court appearance tomorrow, at which police will ask that he be extradited to Australia.
