FBI SWAT Officers Arrest Australian 'Collar Bomb' Suspect

August 16, 2011  | 

Agents with the FBI's SWAT team arrested an Australian businessman Tuesday in connection with a fake collar bomb that had been placed around the neck of a Sydney teenager.

Media headlines captivated online readers reading about the case's bizarre details, including an extortion note attached to the fake bomb that alluded to a character in an obscure novel.

Paul Peters, 50, was arrested at his ex-wife's Louisville home for allegedly targeting the wealthy family of 18-year-old Madeleine Pulver, who endured 10 hours of terror after a masked intruder entered her home and strapped what he said was a bomb to her neck.

After painstakingly removing the device, bomb-disposal experts were able to ascertain that it contained no explosives.
