I know the kid that was arrested for these "booms". What I have gathered from the neighborhood talk is that this kid and a few others were using some kind of aluminum foil and Draino (or something like it) and closing it up in plastic bottles and throwing them in the sewage and/or rain drains. It apparently takes a little while before the pressure builds up enough for the bottles to explode. They learned how to do this over the internet. I never heard of anything like this, so if I got something wrong about it, sorry. I'm sure someone reading this probably knows more about the process than me. And, it doesn't take much to tell other kids in other cities in chat rooms etc. how to do the same thing. Silly prank, but I think the kid's in some serious trouble for it.

Since there is nothing to suggest that it wouldn't work like they are saying, what makes it a cover up? And a cover up of what?
