How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Underwear Bomber Wants Change of Venue

Suspect Abdulmutallab/u.s. marshals photo

The man known as the “underwear bomber” isn’t going down without a fight — despite the overwhelming evidence against him.

The Detroit News reports that  Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab is asking a federal judge to change his trial to another state, saying he can’t get a fair trial in Michigan because the media coverage created an “inflamed commuity atmosphere.”

Attorney Anthony Chambers, who is assisting Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab  with his defense, also asked a judge on Friday to suppress statements made Abdulmutallab when he was in the hospital on painkillers, the Detroit News reported. Trial is set for Oct. 4.

Abdulmutallab, 24, is accused of trying to detonate a bomb in his underwear during a Christmas day flight from Amsterdam to Detroit in 2009.
