Inmates flush bed sheets; flood cell block


DUNN COUNTY - Some bored inmates are accused of making a mess that cost thousands of dollars to fix.

Christopher Stanley, Brandon Bien, and Trevor Thibado were inmates in the Dunn County Jail last month.

They're accused of flushing bed sheets down a toilet, flooding the cell block with raw sewage.

The sheets then got wrapped in mechanisms in the city's sewage pumps and caused several thousand dollars in damage.

Investigators say one of the inmates said they did it because they were bored during half-time of the Super Bowl. All three now face felony charges.
