Ex-EMT in Texas to plead not guilty to charges

WACO, Texas (AP) - A first responder who helped evacuate people ahead of a deadly explosion at a Texas fertilizer plant will plead not guilty to a charge he possessed bomb-making materials.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the western district of Texas says Bryce Ashley Reed agreed Wednesday to postpone a detention hearing and will waive an arraignment. They say he will plead not guilty to a federal charge of possessing an unregistered firearm.

Reed's attorney Jonathan Sibley earlier said his client would plead not guilty. Reed remains in custody.

Reed was among emergency crews that responded to a fire and explosion in West, which killed 14 people. Documents show he lost his job with the West EMS unit two days later.

Authorities have not accused Reed of wrongdoing in the April 17 explosion.
