Bomb squad called after man arrested on suspicion of reckless driving
BLOOMFIELD, Wis. — A portion of Highway 120 in Walworth County was closed Tuesday night after a man reportedly left numerous explosive devices around a parking lot in the town of Bloomfield.
Authorities called in the bomb squad from Kenosha to remove the devices.
Police said it started when officers arrested 46-year-old Robert Leathers after he was driving recklessly in a parking lot.
That’s when they learned he’d allegedly left these bombs around the property.
Highway 120 was closed for around six hours as the area was cleared of explosives.
