A Maryland man has been arrested following a series of “bottle bomb” incidents in Virginia and his home state. Police in Prince George’s County, Maryland, say 20-year-old Manuel Joyner is accused of prank bomb incidents that led to the evacuation of several movie theaters. Fairfax County investigators view Joyner as a suspect in a May 18th incident involving bottles with acids and metals at the AMC Tyson’s Corner 16. There was a similar evacuation at the same theater the day before Memorial Day. Joyner was arrested Saturday at his family’s home in Bowie, Maryland.
