These guys did not want their photos taken.


Two other guys, 20 and 21 years old, decide after leaving a party:

"Hey, wouldn’t it be funny if we went inside this empty police van and then pretended to be arrested and then took fake photos of ourselves?"

The men were arrested, and now have official police photos of themselves.

Yes, alcohol was involved.
