Authorities are investigating how a male prisoner managed to lock himself up with eight female prisoners at the Wilson County Jail.He was returned to his own cell, exhausted but smiling.
Officials believe Joseph Krist, 34, sneaked into the cell after he moved a mop and bucket from his cell into a vestibule located between his and the women's cell. Krist apparently didn't return to his cell, but instead stayed in the vestibule until the women's cell door was remotely opened by a jail employee for them to get the mop.
Deagen said of Krist was in the cell for about 11 hours Monday. He was jailed on a bank robbery charge.
(okay, that last line is just my own joke--it's not part of the report)
