HAMILTON, Mont. (AP) - The Ravalli County Sheriff’s office says an unruly jail inmate broke a fire sprinkler in the county detention center, causing minor flooding.

As a precaution, the county courthouse was evacuated briefly when the fire alarm went off.

The office says Friday’s incident was one of three separate incidents caused by the same inmate this past week.

The sheriff’s office tells KECI-TV (https://bit.ly/1snqQnm ) that the inmate will likely be charged with criminal mischief.

The County Attorney’s office says the same inmate was involved in an assault on a detention officer and breaking windows in the jail.
