Student to be reimbursed for blown-up bike

Ohio University will reimburse a student for a bicycle that was destroyed during a bomb scare.

A sticker on Patrick Hanlin's bike led authorities to shut down four campus buildings March 5.

The sticker said "This Bike is a Pipe Bomb." Authorities later learned that was the name of a Florida punk band.

Bomb experts destroyed the bike and found no bomb inside.

A university attorney says the replacement cost of the 7-year-old touring bike is between $800 and $1,300.

A charge of inducing panic had been filed against Hanlin, but it was later dropped.
