Authorities in Jacksonville say a woman was arrested Tuesday night after she tried to ignite an explosive device during a traffic stop.
Charlaya Moore, 23, was being held in the Duval County jail on charges of possession of a destructive device, aggravated assault on police and resisting police with violence.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said Moore was pulled over at around 11:15 p.m. in the Grove Park area of the city. They said Moore refused multiple requests to get out of the car and began reaching under her seat. As one of the officers tried to pull Moore out of the car, she produced out the explosive device and attempted to ignite it. Another police officer got in the passenger’s side of the vehicle and took the device away from Moore. (Read more from “Florida Woman Tried to Set off Explosive During Traffic Stop” HERE)
