Explosives found in vehicle in San Francisco
April 23, 2014, 05:00 AM

Authorities have identified the man who was arrested in San Francisco’s Presidio after a U.S. Park Service officer allegedly found explosives in the back of his vehicle.

Park service spokeswoman Alexandra Picavet says a park service police officer pulled 46-year-old Eric Smith, of San Francisco, over for a traffic violation a little after 9 p.m. Monday. She says Smith told the officer he had fireworks in the back of the car.

The officer could not determine what the devices were, so the San Francisco police bomb squad was called in. Two businesses near Crissy Field were also evacuated.

The bomb squad determined the two devices, which Picavet said looked like dynamite, were explosive and detonated them at an undisclosed location a little after 1 a.m.

Smith told KTVU-TV he thoughts officers overreacted.

Maybe, but they're still safe
We should do what we can to encourage use since they're less harmfull than cigarettes
Who cares, they're lame
