Two members of the Virginia Tech football have been arrested for using whatever technical skills they've learned in Blacksburg to detonate " a small explosive device."

"Police responded to the 1600 block of Patrick Henry Drive at 8:30 p.m. Sunday in reference to a report of an explosion near an occupied apartment, Blacksburg Lt. Steve Taylor said.

Joshua Taylor Trimble, 20, and Brian Frederick Rody, 19, were charged with manufacturing and detonating an explosive device. Trimble and Rody are members of the Virginia Tech football team.

No one was injured in the incident, according to the release. Taylor said he could not comment on the type of the device or the reason it was detonated."

Rody is a redshirt freshman quarterback, and Trimble isa redshirt freshman linebacker. At least for the moment they are. Virginia Tech HC Frank Beamer probably isn't too happy about this.
