FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas man accused of strapping a fake bomb to a woman's ankle and then trying to forcing her to withdraw money from a bank has pleaded guilty to a federal charge.
Paul Bradley entered the plea Tuesday to one count of being a felon in possession of firearms. Bradley's attorney, Kimberly Weber, says another federal weapons count will be dismissed.
Authorities allege Bradley faked an injury to get into the home of Betty and Herbert Davis, then held Betty Davis captive as he duct-taped her husband and strapped what he claimed was a bomb to her ankle.
The bomb wasn't real.
Bradley faces a trial on state kidnapping and robbery charges to which he has pleaded not guilty.
A formal sentencing date on the federal count hasn't been scheduled.
