One Of Five ‘Occupy’ Bridge Bomb Plotters Pleads Guilty

Anthony Hayne, one of the five men accused of plotting to blow up a bridge outside Cleveland on May 1, pleaded guilty to the charges against him on Wednesday. He has also agreed to cooperate in the prosecution of the four other men, according to The Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Hayne, 35, and the four other men, all in their twenties, were arrested April 30 after allegedly buying fake C-4 explosives from an undercover cop, planting the fake C-4 at the base of a bridge column, and attempting to detonate the explosives with a cellphone.

The men had ties to Cleveland’s Occupy Wall Street demonstrators, but Occupy Cleveland quickly distanced itself from the alleged plotters, and canceled planned May Day protest events, following the arrests.
