Sapulpa Police arrested a father and son early Wednesday morning in connection with two pipe bombs found in an SUV at the Creek County Courthouse.

Officers say surveillance video led them to Berry and Christopher Nichols.

Detectives say the father, Berry Nichols,  was previously involved in another case with the victim -- and was charged with shooting with intent to kill.

Police say the father confessed, saying he and his son were trying to scare the woman.
