"Police arrested two drunk men from South Jersey for pretending to get arrested after they accidentally locked themselves in the back of a police van taking pictures of themselves.
Ryan Letchford and Jeffrey Olsen thought it would be funny to break into the van and take pictures of each other 'in custody'.
But the prank took a turn for the worse when the van locked with the jokers still inside.
According to police, a third man, who was also drunk, found his friends in the back of the van after leaving a nearby party to search for them, but he was unable to set them free and was forced to call 911.
Radnor constable Mike Connor told the Philadelphia Daily News: 'I came down and unlocked the doors, and "Dumb and Dumber" pranced out of the van.
'They looked a little embarrassed.'
The pranksters didn't regain their freedom for too long, as they were immediately arrested for attempted theft of a motor vehicle, criminal mischief and public drunkenness..."
