MELBOURNE, Fla. -- A college student faces felony charges of making, possession and discharging a destructive device after police say an explosion rocked a dorm at Florida Institute of Technology.
    
Melbourne Police say the incident happened early Sunday. They say 19-year-old Christian Barnes Duke told authorities he learned how to make the device by watching "Mythbusters" on the Discovery Channel.
    
According to a police statement, Duke is accused of making the device from common household chemicals to create a reaction inside a container.
    
Police say he put the device in a stairwell at dorm and detonated it "causing a loud blast that disrupted other students."
    
No one was injured.
    
Duke remained in the Brevard County Jail on early Monday.
