On 4 Dec 18 Deputy Gainer responded to a fire alarm in a Washington County Jail dorm.  Dylan Tennant was observed standing on a table with water coming from the ceiling area.  Upon inspection, it was determined the water was coming from an overhead sprinkler head on the ceiling.  When asked who was responsible for the sprinkler being busted Tennant stated he had set it off.  Through further investigating it was discovered that Tennant caused the activation of the fire alarm by “popping” the sprinkler head.  This act diminished the effectiveness or availability of the sprinkler system.  Tennant admitted to this act, stating he wanted out of lockdown.  A charge of criminal mischief, a 5th-degree felony and disrupting public service, a fourth-degree felony were filed on Dylan Michael Tennant, age 21, 407 Franklin Street, Apt. A, Marietta, OH.
