CRESTVIEW — An Okaloosa County Jail inmate is charged with breaking a fire suppression system after guards spotted him carrying his mattress around his cell.
Moments later, the guard heard a loud popping sound. As he watched, the inmate swung his mattress at the sprinkler head a second time, causing water to flood the cell.
Total damage to property was $243, according to the man’s Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.
After being read his rights, the 34-year-old Fort Walton Beach man refused to speak to deputies.
