Officer Johnny Heppler said in a press release that an officer had responded to 2100 East and 430 North Circle on a harassment complaint from a family member of the suspects at 10 p.m. last night. While the officer was at the residence taking the report, the suspects in the harassment case, Kristy Karren, 40, and her husband Danny Karren, 41, allegedly drove by the residence and threw a plastic two liter bottle onto the front lawn.

The officer was able to stop one of the victims from grabbing the bottle, thinking it was trash, just before it exploded. Heppler said the bomb could have caused series damage or death had the victim picked it up.

Debris from the bomb struck the officer and the victim, though neither was injured. The blast caused items in the house to be knocked over, however. The officer was able to catch up to the suspects, who had parked around the corner. Danny Karren is currently out on parole. Heppler did not say what Danny Karren was out on parole for.

He was arrested on charges of Domestic Violence Aggravated Assault, Domestic Violence Stalking, Aggravated Assault, Possession of Explosive Device, Assault on a Police Officer, and a 72 Hour Hold.

    That must have been one heck of a dry ice bomb to rattle things off shelves inside the house. I’ve gone out and thrown dry ice bombs before just in little 20 oz bottles and they were loud but that was it. They never would have knocked stuff off shelves!
