INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis man accused of making a tennis ball into a bomb was formally charged Wednesday morning.
Neal Grubbs, 20, faces felony charges of possessing a destructive device and intending to use it to injure, intimidate or destroy property.
Grubbs was appointed a public defender in court, and his pre-trial conference was set for Feb. 5.
According to court documents, a tennis ball filled with BBs was found in Grubbs' home.
An anonymous tipster told authorities Grubbs was planning to plant the bomb in a movie theater, but Grubbs' family and a close friend said he's being framed by an ex-friend.
