mcdonalds200.jpgMen Allegedly Bomb McDonald's Over Shake

LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) - Two brothers serving in the military and a third man exploded a small bomb inside a McDonald's because they were angry over a bad milkshake, officials said. No one was hurt and damage to the restaurant was minor. Pedro Garza, 19; Joshua Hackey, 19; and Nathaniel Hackey, 21; were arrested Saturday on felony charges of making and discharging a destructive device. The older Hackey is in the Army and his brother is in the Coast Guard, the Polk County Sheriff's Office said.

``One of the guys said they got a bad milkshake, and they played a prank on them,'' sheriff's Maj. Sammy Taylor said.

Investigators say the men mixed toilet bowl cleaner and aluminum foil in a plastic soda bottle as they sat at a table Friday evening near the restaurant's restrooms. They then capped the bottle, put it on the table and left before it exploded at 10:45 p.m. Friday. A customer sitting 10 feet away wasn't hit by the splashing chemicals.

``The toilet bowl cleaner has an acid base,'' Taylor said. ``It can burn your skin and put your eyes out.''

The three were identified from a surveillance video, investigators said.

Marla Baine, the Hackeys' older sister, said they did not think about the consequences of their action and now regret them.

``It's a stupid prank, and they weren't thinking,'' she said. ``I've had calls from them already, and they said they wish they could turn back the hands of time.''

Baine said her brothers are ``two good kids,'' who had never been in trouble with the law.

``Nathan said he's ready to face what's coming to him,'' she said. ``Maybe they'll be made examples, and people won't do this type of thing.''
