BATON ROUGE - On Sunday night, LSU Police say two skateboarders practiced their moves in a place they had no business entering.

According to arrest records, 19-year-old Christian Weaver and 20-year-old Brandon Gilbert were among a group of skateboarders caught on surveillance camera skating in LSU's Pete Maravich Assembly Center, or "PMAC," on Sunday, October 4, shortly before 6 p.m.

LSU Police say they received complaints about the group who reportedly made their way into the 48-year-old facility.

According to police reports, authorities identified both Weaver and Gilbert in the PMAC's surveillance footage. Officials say the men were found shortly after reviewing the tapes walking along Alaska Street, which is just over half of a mile away from the PMAC.

Both men fled when police attempted to stop them, officials report. Authorities were able to catch up to both Weaver and Gilbert, who were booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison that evening.

They were each charged with unauthorized entry into a business and resisting arrest.
