Men crash into building

If you find yourself on the streets of downtown, and you end up drunk, and you start arguing with another drunk man, be careful when you begin fighting. You just might end up bloody and in need of rescue.
Two men fell through a window at a downtown San Antonio bank building, trapping them inside for an hour-and-a-half, police said.

The incident happened at the Broadway Bank building at Pecan St. and Soledad around 4:30 Saturday morning.

Police said the two men had been drinking and started to fight. They fell against the window, breaking it and crashing more than 20 feet to a floor below, investigators said.

The man were trapped inside an enclosed area away from the bank itself.

It took a couple of hours, but the emergency crews got them out, somewhat cut and bruised. They were taken to a hospital and charged with criminal mischief.

Remember, glass is sharp and pointy when it's broken. Be careful on the streets.

So with an hour and a half to kill, do you suppose they just continued to fight it out or did the circumstances cause these two drunk guys to put their beef aside and figure out some way to get out?

I picture them as two brawlers in some movie, fighting it out until the authorities finally shine the spotlights on them and yell, "Freeze!" (At which time they sheepishly and wearily raise their hands and stare at the approaching cops.)

I don't know. Maybe not.
