The Kentucky state police determined there were explosive devices in the house. A special hazardous devices team was called to the home. Shortly after, another explosion was heard. One of Blake's home made bombs accidentally blew up in his hand. His hand was severely mutilated according to police. He was taken to the hospital for treatment.
Blake was charged with two counts of attempted murder of a police officer. He is currently being held in the Shelby County Detention Center. Devices recovered from Blake's house are being tested in a lab. A neighbor, Michael Redmon, said he didn't know anything about Blake, but he was glad no one was killed in the situation.
“It jarred the ground I was walking on. And my grandson was in the house and he came running out and asked what happened. And I said I think someone set a bomb off or dropped a bomb or something. I mean, it was heard for miles around here.” – Michael Redmon
I don't think there has ever been a more appropriate time to say Thank God for saving those officers![mks_button size=”large” title=”Source: WDRB News” style=”rounded” url=”http://www.wdrb.com/story/35485585/explosive-device-blows-up-in-mans-hand-after-he-allegedly-tries-to-kill-two-spencer-county-deputies#.WSQVLVg38ME.facebook” target=”_blank” bg_color=”#dd3333″ txt_color=”#FFFFFF” icon=”fa-newspaper-o” icon_type=”fa” nofollow=”0″]
