Australian man arrested in Ky in fake bomb case

SYDNEY (AP) -

A FBI SWAT team captured a 50-year-old man at his ex-wife's Kentucky home in connection to an attack on an Australian teen who had a fake bomb chained to her neck.

 FBI special agent Elizabeth A. Fries says Paul "Doug" Peters was staying at an apartment complex in La Grange, Ky., when he was arrested on Monday afternoon. It's about 30 miles northeast of Louisville.

She says Peters will have an initial court appearance in Louisville on Tuesday.

 He's an Australian citizen but has lived in the U.S., including Kentucky. Two officers from the New South Wales Police flew to Louisville late Sunday night to assist.

 The arrest comes nearly two weeks after 18-year-old Madeleine Pulver was attacked in her home in the wealthy Sydney suburb of Mosman as part of an alleged extortion attempt.
