How a Drifter-Turned-Terrorist Planned to Blow up a Bridge in Cleveland

Douglas Wright first caught the attention of the FBI when he began to advocate violence as a tactic for the Occupy movement, the Indy Star reports as part of an in-depth look at how the drifter turned into a terrorist intent on blowing up a bridge that crosses the Cuyahoga River into Cleveland.

At an Occupy meeting, Wright met up with an undercover agent masquerading as a member of the group.

Wright, who was sentenced to 11 years in prison Nov. 20 on terrorism charges, became obsessed with disrupting corporate America, the Indy Star wrote.

Wright tried to detonate what he thought were explosives that would blow up the Brecksville-Northfield High Level Bridge.
