If at first you don't succeed, try drinking again.

Police arrested a pair of Cleveland-area teens twice in one day for underage drinking, possessing fake IDs and fighting at two Kelleys Island bars.

At about 1:45 a.m. on May 24, police first encountered the boys when they arrested six teens during a bar fight at the Casino, in the 100 block of Division St., according to a Kelleys Island police report.

Those arrested: Taylor Bowman, 19, Cuyahoga Falls; Matthew Lawrence, 19, Silver Lake; Colton Lewis, 19, Cuyahoga Falls; Anthony Osmun, 19, Munroe Falls; Henry Shaw, 18, Cuyahoga Falls; Travis Williams, 19, Cuyahoga Falls.

They had blood alcohol contents of .179, .103, .053, .097, .207 and .102 percent, respectively, and all received underage consumption charges.

Later that night, police spotted two of the arrested teens at another bar on Division Street, where staff members said they used fake Pennsylvania driver's licenses to obtain alcohol, according to two Kelleys Island police reports. 

The same officers entered Dockers Waterfront Bar and Restaurant at about 11:30 p.m. and arrested Osmun and Shaw for misrepresentation by a minor younger than 21 years, as well as underage consumption once again.

During the exchange, police asked the pair if they had learned their lesson when arrested earlier in the day, and both denied drinking alcohol or having fake IDs, according to the two reports.

Osmun refused to cooperate with police and shoved one during the exchange, also landing charges of resisting arrest and obstructing official business.

Police later patted them down to obtain and confiscate the IDs.

Osmun had a blood alcohol content of .149 percent, while Shaw had a blood alcohol content of .185 percent, according to the two reports.
