The UC Davis researcher injured in a suspicious explosion Thursday at his campus apartment was booked into the Yolo County Jail today on charges related to the incident.
David Snyder, 32, was booked at 2:30 p.m., said UC Davis Police Chief Matt Carmichael, after being treated at a hospital for injuries to his hands.
Snyder is being held in lieu of $2 million bail for investigation of felony possession of an explosive, possession of materials with intent to manufacture an explosive device and possession of firearms on campus.
Snyder received his doctorate from UC Davis in 2011 and earned an undergraduate degree in chemistry from the university in 2004. He was the only one hurt in the 1 a.m. explosion in an apartment at the Russell Park complex on the west side of campus in Davis.
Authorities have not released details about the explosive materials in the apartment or information on the type of firearms in Snyder's apartment. Carmichael previously said the researcher wasn't in possession of anything that would constitute an "assault weapon."
The blast, which caused only minor damage to Snyder's apartment, forced the evacuation of 40 other housing units in five buildings, home to 74 people, including postdoctoral students, spouses and children.
