McDonald's patrons protest bad milkshake with bomb, police say

Three men exploded a small bomb inside a McDonald's because they were angry over a bad milkshake, officials said. No one was hurt.

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.

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 and left before it exploded.
