Man allegedly floods Limestone jail cell

ATHENS — A Madison man allegedly flooded a portion of the Athens Police Department on Saturday, police said.

Capt. Marty Bruce said Douglas Shane Mangus, 33, of 190 Shelton Road, Apartment 186, was in a holding cell after police charged him with two counts of breaking and entering a vehicle.

Bruce said Mangus stole compact disc players and CDs from two vehicles on Vine Street.

While in the cell, he allegedly broke a sprinkler head, Bruce said, flooding that cell.

"The fire suppression system had to be drained until the sprinkler head was removed," he said.

Police then added a charge of first-degree criminal mischief. Mangus was in Limestone County Jail on $4,000 bond.
