    Man says he forgot pipe bomb was in luggage
    Charged with trying to take device on plane, he says it was meant for fun

    OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma man told federal investigators he forgot a pipe bomb he built for fun was in his luggage when tried to board an airplane, according to court documents released Thursday.

    Charles Alfred Dreyling Jr., 24, was charged Thursday with trying to carry the bomb aboard a Delta Airlines flight from Oklahoma City to Atlanta on Wednesday, according to the documents.

    Dreyling was released Thursday on $10,000 bail. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

    FBI agents and Oklahoma City police officers said the pipe bomb contained a metal cartridge filled with gunpowder attached to a detonator made from model rocket parts, according to an affidavit filed by the FBI.

    Dreyling, a student at the University of Oklahoma, could have detonated the bomb using his cell phone battery, according to the affidavit.

    Dreyling told investigators he made bombs for recreation and had recently set off several devices with friends in rural Oklahoma, according to the affidavit.

        I call BS.

        Maybe you build a pipe-bomb for fun. I'm guessing you don't do so inside a suitcase, and you don't put something in the suitcase like that by 'accident'.

        He may be just a complete moron, but unless he was meaning to drive somwehre and decided to fly instead w/o repacking, I call BS.

          Forget a handgun or a knife in your luggage, maybe, it's happened before.

          But a pipe bomb. I don't think anyone could be that much of a dumbass.

                He'll be handling other kind of pipes in the near future. Have fun in prison, moran.

                Dear God, KBF here. I'd just like to say thanks, once again, for allowing Dusty Baker and I to live during the same time period. Every time I think he's given me his last gift -- overpitching Prior in the playoffs, getting cocky in Game 6 vs. the Angels, blowing another game for the Cubs -- he does something stupid like pitching to Albert Pujols. Thy will be done, baby!!!!!

                  by "pipes" do you mean penises?

                  Are you implying that he'll be handling penises in prison?

                  What will he do with them?

                    Doesn't that seem awfully low for somebody who tried to bring a pipe bomb on a plane? If his name was Falah Bakhityar al-Khuzaei that would probably be $100,000 bail or more.

                        If he's truly that stupid, he needs to be committed.
