A 23-year-old man arrested on suspicion of DUI and hit and run Saturday morning intentionally flooded two of his holding cells, according to Colorado Springs Police.

The suspect, Matthew Schneider, was taken to the Colorado Springs Police's Falcon substation after his arrest. There, he shoved toilet paper in the toilet of his first holding cell causing it to overflow, said Sergeant Darrin Abbink. Schneider was moved to a second holding cell, where the toilet paper was removed, but shoved his pants in the toilet, also causing it to overflow, Abbink said.

Schneider was arrested after allegedly running into an unoccupied vehicle, while driving under the influence of alcohol, in the parking lot of O'Furry's restaurant before fleeing the scene, police said.

After flooding his holding cells, Schneider was booked at the Criminal Justice Center.
