Texas Paramedic Who Responded in Fertilizer Blast Pleading Not Guilty in Pipe Bomb Charges

The feds have opened a criminal investigation into the blast but did not say whether the case against the paramedic was connected


An emergency responder to last month's deadly Texas fertilizer plant explosion will plead not guilty to the charge of having possessed materials for a pipe bomb, his lawyer said Saturday.

Bryce Reed will enter that plea on Wednesday at a federal court hearing, lawyer Jonathan Sibley said.
