Christian Barnes, Disneyland Cast Member, Arrested for Toontown Explosion, Held on $1 Million Bail

Well no one saw this one coming: just now, Anaheim police announced they have arrested a person they suspect of planting a water bottle filled with dry ice in a Toontown trash can that caused an explosion at Disneylad yesterday . But it wasn't a dumb teen, a terrorist, or even Judge Doom of Who Framed Roger Rabbit?infamy: it was one of Disneyland's own.

22-year-old Christian Barnes of Long Beach was arrested on suspicion of possessing a destructive device and is being held on $1 million bail. Mickey don't fuck around.

Barnes, according to an APD press release, "is cooperating with investigators and has indicated this is an isolated incident with unanticipated impacts," whatever the hell that means.

If Barnes is in fact the Toontown bomber, he will not only be on our Scariest People issue this year, he just might make it into the Stupidest People list of the century. Whoever the dry ice bomber is: your really think you were going to escape the All-Seeing Eye of Mickey? PENDEJO!!!
