Man admits to having explosive device

LAWTON, Okla._A Lawton man is facing felony charges after confessing to possessing an explosive device.

Bryan Peeler was arrested Friday morning after sheriff's deputies found him passed out in his vehicle with what looked like a weapon sticking out of his waist band. While removing Peeler from the vehicle, deputies found a bag of various ammo, needles full of meth and a metal object with a fuse.

Peeler told them the metal canister contained gun powder. The explosive device was taken to a secure field behind the Great Plains Coliseum and was detonated by Fort Sill Explosive Ordnance.

Peeler is being held on a $35,000 bond. Another court date is set for August.

    Senate Republicans are now considering two versions of similar legislation, one that would repeal and replace, and another that would simply repeal "Obamacare" with a two-year delay for implementation to give the Senate more time to agree on a replacement.
