Johnny Cash water tower springs a leak in very unfortunate spot

KINGSLAND, Ark. -- A water tower is leaking in the small town of Kingsland, Arkansas. 

It's hardly news, except for the fact that Kingsland is the birthplace of Johnny Cash, and his mural is on the water tower and the leak in question is in a very unfortunate spot. 

It turns out someone actually shot the water tower, creating the leak of about 30,000 gallons of water a day. The mayor was quoted as saying he was frustrated by the act of vandalism, but at the same time he was a little impressed, calling it a "good shot." 

A person has been arrested and could face felony charges. 

If convicted, that man might soon be singing the "Folsom Prison Blues."
