All couples, especially those who have been married for some time, get into squabbles. But one man in Vero Beach, Florida took a family argument to a whole new level.
Randolph Smith decided to create a fake bomb and place it on his kitchen counter in an effort to terrify his wife. Local police authorities received a call from a woman who claimed her husband, who was later identified as Smith, left a grey pipe on the countertop.
It reportedly had a long wire stemming out from one end, giving the appearance that it was legitimate and could explode at any moment. Adding to the terror, Smith also left behind some handwritten notes detailing the fact that the device was an explosive.
The bomb squad was immediately notified of the incident and arrived on scene to investigate. It was soon discovered that the bomb-appearing gadget did not contain any explosives.
Cops quickly caught up with Smith and arrested him on charges of planting a hoax bomb, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest. His reasoning for planning the fake bomb was because in Smith’s own words, his wife “"pissed him off."
