MADISON, Wis., Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Police in Madison, Wis., said two men were arrested after they allegedly broke into a restaurant and drank a $600 bottle of tequila.

Charles Lindsey, 41, and Bill Martin, 47, were tentatively charged with burglary after they allegedly broke into Frieda's Restaurant early Friday morning, drank the expensive bottle of liquor and attempted to escape with several other bottles of pricey booze before they were caught by the restaurant's owner, The (Madison) Capital Times reported Tuesday.

The owner phoned police and the two men were apprehended by officers.
