LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested two men after they climbed to the roof of a business while drunk.
The incident happened on Shelbyville Road, near Blankenbaker Pkwy, just before 5:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 19.
Police say they responded to a caller who said he saw two people on the roof of a building at that location, who weren't supposed to be there. As an officer drove by the building to check out the scene, a rock struck his car, according to an arrest report.
After climbing up on the roof, police allegedly found two people -- 21-year-old Cody T. Himes and 21-year-old Hunter J. Goodan -- hiding behind a ventilation system. Police say Goodan claimed his car was hit by a rock while he was driving by too, so he and Himes decided to climb to the roof to investigate.
The pair "smelled strongly of alcoholic beverages," according to the arrest reports, and they allegedly admitted to drinking beer at various Bardstown Road bars.
Police say that, "by climbing onto the roof of a building and throwing rocks at cars," Goodan, "posed a threat to others and himself."
Both men were arrested and charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place.
