According to Metro, Williams had threatened to unleash a cockroach bomb on the kitchen if they did not pay him.

Prosecutor David Eager noted Williams made true his threat a few days later, releasing the cockroaches which are a non-native species.

Williams pleaded guilty to charges of burglary with intent to cause criminal damage at the facility. He was also charged with failing to surrender to authorities.

In mitigation, Williams said he had been angered by the management's failure to pay him, yet he was the breadwinner for his son as the sole custodian.

The presiding judge Catarina Sjolin Knight, while making her ruling, took a swipe at Williams, branding him immature for his age.

"Your son and society, in general, could benefit from you growing up," the judge said.
