CLEVELAND (AP) - A grand jury indicted three men accused of throwing an explosive device akin to a firecracker at a Cleveland Indians game.

The explosion injured four people and briefly disrupted the ninth inning of the Indians' win against Philadelphia at Jacobs Field on June 11.

Donald Kreiger and Clifton Oliver, both 22, and 20-year-old Andrew Mendez were indicted on Wednesday on four counts of aggravated arson, four counts of felonious assault and three counts of obstruction of justice. No arraignment date was scheduled.

If convicted on all counts, each faces the possibility of more than 70 years in prison.

All three are from Elyria. They remain free on $50,000 bonds.

Police said that the explosive device burned an usher's chest and the legs of a woman.
