SAN ANTONIO, Texas -

(AP) - Two men arrested for breaking into SeaWorld in San Antonio say they were part of a group that did so as part of a fraternity initiation.
    
Two Houston men ages 18 and 23 were arrested at the scene early Wednesday.
    
The San Antonio Express-News (http://bit.ly/1kV3Y9m ) says that according to a police report, the two told police they were among seven who broke into the park as part of a fraternity initiation after being told to take pictures with the animals after dark.
    
But a manager and another employee working late saw the group and called security and police.
    
The two men were arrested and charged with criminal trespass and theft. Both admitted to taking ice cream from an unlocked kiosk freezer.
    
A helicopter search did not find the others.
