BOAZ, Ala. – Two Boaz City Jail inmates are facing felony charges after being accused of flooding the male portion of the jail on Thursday night.

Police said Veasy was just released from prison, where he was serving time for possession of a controlled substance, theft of property, and escape. Norwood had no prior felony convictions, according to authorities.
