Wayne Teen Accused of Flooding College Dorm

Paul O'Donnell Jr., 19, allegedly broke a sink at Clemson University.

A Wayne resident attending Clemson University was charged with a felony after he allegedly caused minor flooding to a dorm at the school this week.

Paul O'Donnell Jr., 19, a freshman at the South Carolina school, allegedly broke a sink, damaging plumbing in the dorm, Independentmail.com reported Thursday.

Clemson spokesman John Glouch told the website police were called to the dorm at about 3:20 a.m. Thursday because water was leaking from a third-floor sink damaging ceiling tiles on the first and second floors, triggering a fire alarm, the article said.
O'Donnell was charged with felony causing malicious injury to real property worth more than $2,000 but less than $10,000 and misdemeanor public disorderly conduct. He was released Thursday on a $5,600 bond.

Another fine example of some of Wayne's spoiled kids. I am sure he will feel the hand of Southern Justice. They aren't so lenient down there. Making his parents Proud!

Shame on you Daniel Hubbard. I agree with bp, Why is this news? Let's celebrated our kids accomplishments rather than pointing out their teenage mistakes and dragging family names through the mud. Let's root for Wayne kids to succeed rather than root for them to fail!

bp and wendy, This doesn't seem to be anyone rooting for anything. It is "local" news just as was the story on another local alleged criminal being considered for a QB position on the U of M program next year. It's news. Period.

That wasn't news either. Period.

It is the trash that needs to leave. Wayne was once a nice place to live.

Wayne was nice until parents stopped parenting and will accept responsibility for their children instead of blaming everyone else and hiring lawyers. Many children are still brought up the right way but on the other hand many think they are above the law, disrespectful etc. This attitude only comes from the home. The parents are always smoking, drinking, smoking pot etc. so the children see nothing wrong with this and continue down the same path. I have seen so many parents who see the problem but won't do anything about it until its too late. They refuse to believe there's a problem or shrug it off as teenagers finding their own way thru life. They take the easy way out by being their children's friend instead of being their parents.

I hate to say this, but my overall impression of my hometown is that the milieu has changed for the worse over the past 25 years.
