HAGERSTOWN -- A Hagerstown man is charged with arson threat and reckless endangerment after he was seen detonating chemical reaction devices in a local mobile home park and looking at a Web site about building bombs, according to court records.
A witness said Michael Austin Womack, 33, of 18509 Northaven St., blamed his mother for all of his problems and said he wanted to blow up her house with her in it, according to Washington County District Court records.
Womack was being held on $75,000 bond Thursday afternoon at the Washington County Detention Center.
Deputy State Fire Marshal Ed Ernst said he was asked to assist with an incident in which Womack was being evicted from a residence in the Northaven Mobile Home Park along Pennsylvania Avenue north of Hagerstown.
According to court records, Womack became very irate, said no one else was going to live in the home and that he was going to burn it down.
