We all do stupid shit during spring break. It’s part of the experience. However, most of our drunken antics do not involve breaking into a park full of giant sea creatures that have been known to kill in the past.
That’s exactly what happened last night at SeaWorld in San Antonio. Five friends, some from the University of Houston, decided to climb over the walls in search of “ice cream and fish to take pictures with.” Park security spotted these guys around 2 a.m. and alerted the San Antonio Police Department. When officers arrived at SeaWorld, the friends ran. The police chased them through the park, arresting two of the five.
Police investigators believe the spring breakers may have broken into the park as part of a fraternity prank during their vacation to San Antonio. Police can only confirm these guys stole ice cream, and the two captured suspects were each charged with one count of criminal trespassing and one count of theft under $500. As of this morning, the two who were arrested were being held on $800 bail.
SeaWorld officials have confirmed no animals were harmed by the friends and released the following statement about the incident, per KENS 5:
“SeaWorld is working with San Antonio law enforcement to investigate individuals who were unlawfully trespassing early this morning. San Antonio Police Department has custody of two individuals, and SeaWorld has not found any animals harmed as a result of this morning’s event.”
Of the two guys who were arrested, Duc Nguyen, 23, and Huy Mai, 18, the University of Houston confirmed Nguyen as being enrolled in the university.
