WAILUKU, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - An apparent prank caused quite a stir at the courthouse in Wailuku.

Authorities say someone planted a so called "dry ice bomb" in the parking lot around lunchtime.

Then when the plastic bottle exploded, it made a loud boom, but no one was hurt.

Police and even bomb-sniffing dogs responded.

Authorities did not have to evacuate the courthouse and no other devices were found.
