"We are aware of the allegations and supporting affidavit charging Mr. Reed with the possession of a destructive device. Mr. Reed vigorously denies those allegations and will be entering a plea of not guilty during his court appearance Wednesday, May 15, 2013. At this point in time, we have not been able to obtain specific information about the extent of the allegations, but Mr. Reed anxiously awaits his day in court and his opportunity to address these allegations."

"Additionally, Mr. Reed wishes to address any speculation that these allegations are related to the explosion at the West, Texas fertilizer plant on April 17, 2013. Let me be very clear, Mr. Reed had no involvement whatsoever in the explosion at the West, Texas fertilizer plant. Mr. Reed was one of the first responders and lost friends, family, and neighbors in that disaster. Mr. Reed is heartbroken for the friends he lost and remains resolute in his desire to assist in the rebuilding of his community."

"We ask that Mr. Reed's family, friends, and community not rush to judgment. Mr. Reed has been through significant hardship in the wake of the disaster in West and he has responded and served his community with honor and strength."
