Florida man's deadliest catch forces police to evacuate Taco Bell

One Florida man made headlines last week when he reportedly found an explosive while magnet fishing, put it in the trunk of his vehicle, and drove to a Taco Bell.

Police said the vintage explosive was taken 17 miles from where it was fished up to the Taco Bell, according to ABC News.

They said the man was magnet fishing nearby when he reeled in the grenade.

Gwyneth Paltrow sued for seriously injuring man in ski crash
Sanderson claims in the lawsuit that the 46-year-old actress left him injured on the mountain and didn't send for help. A spokeswoman for the resort said it had not received a copy of the lawsuit and does not comment on litigation.

Police said that the man picked up the grenade, put it in his trunk and broght it to the fast food restaurant.

The restaurant was evacuated and the Marion County Sheriff's Office bomb squad was dispatched to remove the grenade. The bomb squad removed the grenade without incident and advised it would be disposed of properly.

The Ocala Star-Banner reported that the bomb squad later discovered that the grenade's firing pin mechanism did not appear to function. A fisherman from Florida, however, has made a rather unusual catch and a hand grenade from the Second world war on the Magnet had the hook.
