SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A beauty contest winner and three other teens have taken a plea deal after being accused of tossing homemade bottle bombs in a Salt Lake suburb.

Kendra McKenzie Gill and the other 18-year-olds pleaded guilty Thursday to attempted possession of a chemical device, a misdemeanor. The charges will be dismissed after they complete 200 hours of community service. In addition, each was fined $500.

Felony charges were dropped as part of the plea agreement.

The defendants were initially accused of driving around last month to toss plastic bottles filled with a toilet bowl cleaner. It reacted with aluminum foil to explode. They said it was a harmless prank.

Gill was Miss Riverton until she relinquished her crown after her arrest.
