Man Accused of Flooding Police Station

Bethlehem police have accused a 48-year-old Freemansburg man of flooding a holding cell inside police headquarters after being arrested on public drunkenness charges, court records say.

Kenneth A. Moschetto, of the 100 block of North Oak Street, on Monday night tampered with a fire sprinkler enough to activate it, causing the cell and an adjacent hallway to flood, records say.

The damage, cost of repair and related expenses is estimated at $5,000, records say.

Moschetto was arrested in the 100 block of West Union Boulevard after a police officer saw him stumbling down the street "nearly falling over" and in "an intoxicated stupor," records say. Moschetto told the officer he was trying to walk home to Freemansburg, but he was headed in the opposite direction, records say.

After Moschetto was arrested for public drunkenness he became "hostile and belligerent," records say.

Moschetto told police he had been drinking liquor because "his girlfriend was getting married," records say. A preliminary breath test showed Moschetto's blood-alcohol content to be 0.18, records say.

Moschetto is charged with tampering with fire apparatus, institutional vandalism, criminal mischief, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct. He was sent to Northampton County Prison in lieu of $5,000 bail.
