Augusta man gets 11 months for soda bomb

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine — A Maine man is going to spend 11 months in jail for setting off a soda acid bomb that injured a woman.

Paul Glidden, 22, pleaded guilty Thursday in Kennebec County Superior Court to domestic violence for the April 24 incident.

After his arrest police said Glidden had been arguing with a woman in an Augusta apartment. He left and returned with another man. The bomb was then thrown at the woman.

Two police officers reported their eyes and throats were burning from fumes in the bottle.

The Kennebec Journal quotes District Attorney Evert Fowle as saying the victim of the bombing suffered minor injuries.

Glidden was also ordered to pay up to $1,000 restitution.
