Prosecutors filed charges of bomb possession Friday against a recently crowned Utah beauty pageant winner.
Kendra McKenzie Gill was arrested last weekend with three accomplices for what one described as a prank. All four face the same set of four felony charges, prosecutor Blake Nakamura said Friday.
The 18-year-olds were arrested Saturday after driving around neighborhoods and allegedly tossing plastic bottles filled with caustic chemicals at people they knew. Nobody was injured.

While it sounds like a prank to me (toilet bowl cleaner and aluminum foil?), all I can say is I am glad I’m not a kid today. Everything is a felony...
I never realized that was a felony.
Maybe in a glass bottle...
If I was a kid today, and did what I did in the 70's, I would be in prison. Luckily back then, Cops would just shake their heads call us "stupid kids," and send us home. Thank God people back then were less tolerant and didn't practice Tolerance like they do today.
I guess the Government needs to keep police busy to keep the heat off the real criminals (in the Government).
In this girl’s case, I’d take the word beauty out of beauty queen. She’s no beauty.
She'd likely look a lot better with better lighting, relaxed features, a little make-up, and a smile, but she is hardly in a situation where any of those is easily obtainable.
That photo is of the same quality as the average mug shot.
“Way back then” the BATFE didn’t exist and “law” didn’t fill books to the the point of making anyone a felon. And that is the idea behind the “law” today. Not punishment but the wholesale criminalization of the populace. Which amounts to nothing more than “control”. I’m reminded of “stroke of the pen, law of the land” from one of the Clinton gang.
Do a google search for her name. She cleans up ok.
We used M-80’s back in the day.
Just some kids having fun.
Should be talked to, and grounded for two weeks
In the new world order a ‘bomb’ is anything the police want it to be. Mix baking soda and vinegar and it’s a ‘bomb’
It is amazing how plain Jane a lot of otherwise glamorous women look without makeup.
False advertising at its finest.....
Sadly, it does represent the more wicked tone of the modern times. It looks hateful to me. It just isn’t a harmless if shocking noise and a mess, it’s caustic chemicals. And for a beauty queen to do it... what kind of corrupted beauty is this? We are entering territory that looks a bit like the old Grimm tales.
People are getting really bosom buddies with Satan today. And the sad thing is, this devil is really a very small runt, next to God. Jesus can whip him in nothing flat. But it’s time, as always, for people to choose.
Oh, there’s nothing wrong with women using adornment to look prettier any more than for men to use adornment to look more handsome... to a point of reason of course. But the emphasis should be on beauty of soul and that comes from God. This gal acted like an ugly witch. Debate if we must about just how bad it ought to be treated as, but bad it is.
At my daughters birthday party several years back, I made dry ice bombs.
Same idea without chemicals. Two-liter bottles exploding from pressure sounds like dynamite. Great fun.
To treat these as if they are grenades is stupid.
The idiocy of some government officials have no bounds.
I'd still hit it.
That people park their sensitive parts over residues of every day (toilet bowl cleaner). The chemicals react to produce the gas that makes the pressure that makes the bang. By virtue of that reaction, they should be rendered less caustic. They could have done the same thing with mentos and pepsi if they had been just a smidgin more creative. It's a firecracker without fire.
Now, maybe our ideas of fun differed when we were kids, but the stuff we made loud noises with was far more dangerous (ignition potential, sometimes shrapnel), even if we didn't throw them in anyone's general direction.
