Man Charged with Vandalism for Defecating in Sink, Trying to Flush Pants
Thomas Wambold, 50, had a messy evening with police on November 20, after he allegedly defecated in the sink of a holding cell, then urinated on the floor and attempted to flush his pants.
A Pottstown man is facing charges of institutional vandalism and public drunkenness, following a domestic disturbance which later lead to the passing of bodily fluids throughout a holding cell at the Pottstown Police Station.
According to court records, police were dispatched to the 300 block of East High Street at 8:29 p.m. on November 20, when they encountered 50-year-old Thomas Wambold, who allegedly appeared to be in an intoxicated state. Police placed Wambold under arrest for public drunkenness, as well as for an existing summary warrant, and transported him to the Pottstown Police Department.
Upon being placed in a holding cell, Wambold allegedly became agitated and began to yell and scream. The affidavit of probable cause states that Wambold then defecated in the sink, urinated on the floor, and attempted to flush his pants in an effort to flood the cell. Police were forced to shut off the water supply to avoid the clog and overflow.
Wambold was then charged with institutional vandalism, which is a class two misdemeanor.
