Slidell Police arrested 26-year-old Larry Northcutt and 29-year-old Tyler Flanagan, both from Illinois.
Officers were dispatched to the Old Towne Tavern on Sunday at around 1:40 a.m. after the manager reported that Northcutt and Flanagan were ripping soap dispensers and paper dispensers off the walls, as well as destroying urinals.
Slidell Police also learned the same type of vandalism had happened at two other establishments, Time Out Lounge and Heidelberg's Bar.
Police picked up both men and brought them to the Slidell City Jail, but say they refused to give officers their names and were belligerent to officers and their fellow inmates.
Police said about 24 hours later, Northcutt and Flanagan began to cooperate. They were booked with three counts of criminal damage and for disturbing the peace by public intoxication.
