Man arrested Wednesday after traffic stop
A man arrested Wednesday with bomb-making materials in his car had drugs and an alligator in his home, a federal agent testified Friday.
Clayton Earthman, 43, was arrested after police said he ran a stop sign near Fair Park.
An officer said Earthman had a gun in his car. A search later revealed he had bomb-making material and notes on how to make bombs, police said.
Earthman claimed to be a Doomsday Prepper. A cable TV show by the same name profiles people preparing for the end of the world.
On Thursday, agents with the bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives searched his house near Pleasant Grove.
They found 15 marijuana plants, bomb-making material, and an alligator, according to a Dallas police report.
Neighbors say they saw agents carry two alligators from the home on Woodard Avenue.
"That's scary, said neighbor Susan Collins. We didn't know he had all that."
At his court appearance, a judge ordered Earthman held without bond because he was a danger to the community.
We must immediately ban assault Alligators!
A police officer might thing twice about shooting a guard gator.
Here’s something SELCO and FERFAL never thought of... taking the long view on fashionable footwear.
Certainly a one up on his neighbors with the Rottweiler.
A Prepper garbage disposal, I like it!
Isn’t that what the Flintstones used?
I run a stop sign and all of a sudden I’m a terrorist and they take my alligator barbecue away? Holy F..., we are in WAYYYYYYY over over our ‘nads.
It was just another work in progress.
Unless he's a felon, that's as legal as church on Sunday in Texas.
Doomsday choomer, sounds like...
Give em Hell, Gators!
What’s his FR screen name?
It worked on Miami Vice, and if the world came to an end, I'd want durable boots.
But it was BS......UF never had a real gator as a mascot, as Sonny mentioned.
