Police arrested two men Tuesday on charges that they vandalized the inside of Crofton Bowling Lanes and cars parked in the lot.
Brett Anderson McDowell, 18, of the 1700 block of Reynolds St. in Crofton and Nathan Woody Postle, 23, of the 700 block of Oster Drive in Crownsville were charged with destruction of property.
Patrons at the bowling alley in the 2100 block of Priest Bridge Drive in Crofton called police shortly before midnight after the two left.
Manager Blanche Pfarr told police two men were part of a bowling group that was asked to leave after breaking a $50 clay ashtray.
The two men got angry, went to the bathroom and threw toilet paper all over the bathroom, police said. When they went outside, they kicked the mirrors off a 1994 Honda and a 1994 Isuzu truck and threw 13 beer cans at a 1995 Dodge Neon that was parked nearby, police reported. Witnesses said the two drove off in a light green Mercedes-Benz.
An officer on Route 3 near Route 450 was flagged down and stopped a car on Route 3 and took two men back to the bowling alley, where they were identified by patrons, police said.
Both men were arrested and taken to Western District police station. Bail information was not available.
