MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) – An inmate at the Davison County Jail faces charges after he allegedly locked a jailer in a cell with another prisoner.

Twenty-three-year-old Cory Zobel, of Salem, is accused of shutting and locking a cell door behind a female jailer who was delivering property to another inmate.

According to court documents, Zobel told an officer he did it because he thought it was funny.

The Daily Republic of Mitchell reports that Zobel is charged with obstructing a jailer, a misdemeanor, and faces up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine.

The jailer wasn’t hurt.
