Md. Movie 'Bottle Bomb' Suspect Confesses

LARGO, Md. (AP) - Authorities say a Maryland man has confessed to setting off "bottle bombs" at five movie theaters in Virginia and Maryland.
    
At a press conference Monday in Largo, authorities said 20-year-old Manuel Joyner of Bowie has been charged in at least two counties and faces charges in others.
    
Officials say soda bottles filled with acid were detonated between March and May at movie theaters in Montgomery, Prince George's and Anne Arundel counties in Maryland and Fairfax County and the city of Alexandria in Virginia. The explosions panicked moviegoers but caused no serious injuries.
    
Joyner's bail initially was set at $50 million, but a judge later denied bail at a hearing Monday in Prince George's County.
    
An attorney who represented Joyner in an unrelated case did not immediately return a message Monday.
