Police say guilt was written all over their faces.
“They probably were just not thinking straight and figured we’ll go out and scare the guy or whatever,” Cayler said. “[They were] being dumb and combine that with alcohol and it was the perfect storm.” Both men were charged with attempted burglary, and McNelly was charged additionally with operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Lawyers for the two men could not be reached for comment. Cayler said he’s been fielding calls about the case from news media outlets from all over the country — mostly because of their funny-looking mug shots. “I’ve been chief here almost 25 years, been with the department 28 years and I’ve seen a lot of things that make me laugh and weird things but this was probably the best combination of the two — strangely weird and hilariously funny all at the same time.”
