HUDSON, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire jail inmate has been accused of triggering the sprinkler in his cell and flooding it, and then punching an employee.

Nathaniel Rines was arrested in Hudson on a charge of driving while intoxicated. WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1xbCDUS) while he was waiting for bail, the sprinkler was activated.
