2nd man arrested in ’bottle bomb’ explosions

LARGO, Md. – Authorities say a second man has been charged with blowing up soda bottles at movie theaters in the Washington area.

Prince George’s County fire officials say 23-year-old Michael Hollingsworth was arrested Friday and charged with two felonies in connection with a “bottle bomb” detonation at a theater in Largo.

The first suspect in the bottle bomb incidents was arrested last week. Manuel Joyner Bell is facing felony charges in both Maryland and Virginia for a series of explosions this spring inside crowded movie theaters. At the time, authorities did not indicate that they believed Joyner Bell had an accomplice.

Fire officials say they expect Hollingsworth will be charged in additional attacks.

A person who answered the phone at the home of Hollingsworth’s mother on Saturday said she was not available.
