Eric Hayes of Austin said he wasn’t familiar with how the sprinkler worked, and when he was playing with it this week he broke something, causing the sprinkler to go off, damaging his cell, some books, and his sleeping mat.

Hayes was moved to a different cell, and he could be charged with “damage to property”. The damage is estimated at about $400.
