DENVER — A 20-year-old woman accused of hurling a fire bomb at Denver
police officers during a protest last week faces two counts of attempted
murder and other charges, prosecutors said Thursday.

Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey formally charged Amelia Nicol
with the attempted murder counts along with two counts of assault and
single counts of use of explosives, possession of explosives, arson,
inciting a riot, resisting arrest and criminal mischief.

The charges state that on the night of May 6 Nicol threw an incendiary or
explosive device at officers in a marked patrol car. The device exploded
and burned, damaging the patrol car. The two officers in the car were not

The charges also allege that Nicol fled the scene and as she was being
taken into custody a short time later she spit on officers and resisted
arrest, said district attorney spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough.

The incident occurred at 11th Avenue and Kalamath Street during a march by
people protesting law enforcement brutality cases in the Denver metro

“March against police terror!” said an announcement for the protest on the
Facebook page of a group called Denver Black Anarchist Cross.

“The police are at war with the people. It’s time for the people to be at
war with the police,” the release said.

The Facebook page showed a cartoon of a woman atop an oil drum surrounded
by flames kicking a police officer in the chin, knocking his riot helmet

Nicol remained in Denver Jail Thursday. Her bond was set at $50,000.

Nicol was initially booked as Jane Doe, because she refused to provide her
name, Kimbrough said.

Amelia has a courtdate set for Monday morning at 9:30am in Court Room 2100
in the Denver County Courthouse, 490 West Colfax
