DELAND, Fla., (UPI) — Authorities in Florida said two men are facing charges for running through a blocked-off parking lot and taking pictures with a sheriff’s office helicopter.

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office said Jason Mayid, 25, and Justin Sanford, 24, ran through the blocked off parking lot of JR’s Country Western Club in DeLand just after 1 a.m. Sunday and continued taking cellphone pictures with the helicopter parked there despite being ordered to leave by deputies, WKMG-TV, Orlando, Fla., reported Wednesday.

The arrest report said Mayid and Sanford admitted to consuming “a few drinks” before the incident. They said they ran to the chopper because they “thought it would be an awesome picture.”

Mayid and Sanford were charged with resisting arrest and disorderly intoxication.
