EASTON, Pa. (AP) — A southeastern Pennsylvania man is free on bail, charged with criminal mischief for flooding the Easton police station.

Robert
Robertson III of Coatesville, Pa., was arrested in February for
allegedly breaking the glass door at the Partyology store in Easton.

While
he was at police headquarters, officials say, Robertson climbed the
sides of his holding cell and fumbled with an emergency sprinkler which
then went off, activating the station’s fire alarm. Police say the sprinklers left 3 to 4 inches of water in parts of the station after just a few minutes.

Robertson
waived his right to a preliminary hearing Tuesday and will apply for
the accelerated rehabilitation disposition program, which could allow
him to clear his record.
