Authorities: 2 men had explosives night of Michigan basketball team's national title game loss


ANN ARBOR, Mich.  — Authorities say two Ann Arbor men had Molotov cocktails the night the University of Michigan basketball team lost in the NCAA championship game to Louisville.

Justin Dozier and Rosario Bruno are charged with two counts each of possessing/manufacturing explosives, a four-year felony.

The 20-year-olds were arraigned Wednesday in Ann Arbor district court and have a preliminary hearing scheduled for May 30.

Ann Arbor police responding to a report of a mattress fire last month found a bottle with a flammable liquid in it, an item popularly known as a Molotov cocktail.

Lt. Robert Pfannes tells AnnArbor.com investigators linked Dozier and Bruno to several of them.

A university website indicates both men are Michigan students. Messages seeking comment were left with them on today.
