Rod Coronado arrested for 2003 teach-in in San Diego

Details are sketchy, but a federal indictment was handed down by a Federal Grand Jury in San Diego charging Rod with "teaching and demonstrating the making of a destructive device" before a crowded room at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Community Center in Hillcrest on Aug. 1, 2003, one day after an arson at the University Towne Center apartment complex under construction in San Diego.

Rod is already awaiting setencing from previous charges. 2 months back Rod and Matt Crozier were found guilty of felony conspiracy to interfere with or injure a government official (max 7 years), charges related to an Earth First! campaign to prevent mountain lions from being captured or killed by hunters in Tucson, Arizona in March 2004.
