INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Prosecutors have charged an Indianapolis man accused of turning a tennis ball into a bomb.
 
Twenty-year-old Neal Grubbs was formally charged Wednesday with felonious possession of a destructive device.
 
WRTV-TV reports court documents state officers found a tennis ball filled with BBs in Grubbs' home last month.
 
An anonymous tipster told authorities Grubbs was planning to plant the bomb in a movie theater, but Grubbs' family and a close friend said he's being framed by a former friend.
 
Grubbs was being held in the Marion County Jail.
