JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- A man who West Tennessee authorities had no reason to jail has given them two.
Madison County Sheriff David Woolfork told The Jackson Sun Clint Earl Sims showed up Tuesday at the county jail to turn himself in. Deputies checked warrants and there were none for Sims. They told him there was no cause to put him in jail.
Woolfork said Sims then said he would give them one. The warrant states Sims picked up a gumball vending machine in the jail lobby, carried it outside and used it to break out two windows.
The charges are burglary and vandalism.
Sims was still in the jail Thursday morning.
Woolfork said he never experienced a person breaking into jail before.
