Stillwater jail inmate may face charges for property damage

Updated:
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ A Stillwater municipal jail inmate could face a felony charge after allegedly causing more than $20,000 damage to the facility.

Sheridain Anthony Halford is accused of removing the fire-suppression sprinkler head at the facility, which allowed thousands of gallons of water to flood the immediate area, police Chief Norman McNickle said.

``It was only one sprinkler, but those things hold so much water and put it out so fast, it was flooded in just a few seconds,'' McNickle said.

At least three cameras, sheetrock and several ceiling tiles were damaged on Sunday, he said.

A water removal company spent most of the day cleaning up the mess, he said. A special sprinkler head had to be installed by a Tulsa company.

The $20,000 price tag includes labor and damages.

Halford was being held in the municipal jail on a charge of aggravated DUI. He was transferred to the Payne County Jail.

McNickle said officers presented the case to Payne County prosecutors for a felony charge of malicious injury to property.
