LOUISVILLE, Ky.  — Court documents reveal new details about the allegations against an Australian man accused of attaching a fake bomb to a teenager’s neck as part of an extortion plot. 
 
An arrest complaint against Paul “Doug” Peters was unsealed Tuesday in US federal court in Kentucky. Peters was arrested Monday by the FBI at the home of his ex-wife in a Louisville suburb. 
 
The complaint says the teenager, Madeleine Pulver was studying for her high school certificate exams when he walked into her bedroom with a baseball bat and wearing a balaclava around his head. 
 
The complaint says he attached the bomb to her and told her: “Count to 200 ... I’ll be back ... if you move I can see you I’ll be right here.”
