Friday, October 16, 2020, Atoka County Sheriff Office Jailer/Dispatcher/Reserve Deputy Stevie Page was in dispatch at the Atoka County Jail when the fire alarm system began going off in the jail.
Assistant Jailer, Candice Smith, and Kitchen Supervisor, Mary Golden checked the south end of the jail for a possible fire.
They discovered the sprinkler head in the County POD Sally Port of the jail had been broken off. Water was flowing freely into the POD, and was flooding the entire back half of the jail.
The Atoka Fire Department was dispatched for assistance with the sprinkler. The water was shut off to the area.
Officer Golden asked the inmates in the county POD area what had happened.
Brian Dewayne Massey, 38, told Officers Smith and Golden he had broken into the Sally Port and broke the sprinkler head with a food tray because he was angry about being in that POD.
Inmate Thomas Alderson advised Officer Smith that he assisted Massey in the act.
Western States Fire Protection Company of Tulsa was contacted for an emergency service call. The total cost of the repair is $1,525.00.
Massey is charged with malicious injury to property over $1,000 (felony).
