Kentucky State Police have released the name of the man arrested Thursday morning after a homemade improvised explosive device was found by a state trooper during a traffic stop.
The man, 45-year-old Michael Jack Higgs of Grant Pass, Oregon, was charged with third degree use of weapon of mass destruction, possession of a handgun by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, failure of owner to maintain insurance, and operating on a suspended operator’s license. (He might be dumber than the man caught at the Raleigh capitol yesterday.  Close race, though :)

    1. Good question. Doesn't look like he's the talkative type though. :)

  3. But... wait! Aren't there laws on the books that prohibit that person from doing ALL of those things?!
    Wow..
    CLEARLY we need MORE laws, right??

    I'm curious what led the cop to search the car. Maybe him being a felon creates enough probable cause for a turn down?

    1. :) Maybe the plates came back to his name which showed a suspended operator's license and no vehicle insurance.
