Two young, maybe-brothers learned at least two valuable lessons Sunday night. Ranked in order of importance, those lessons are: 1) don't be a creep and spy on women (or anyone) in the bathroom and 2) don't crawl across ceiling tiles, especially if you're spying on women in the bathroom. Alas, the confusingly named suspects, Eduard Petrovich Kovynev, 26, and Eduard Alexander Kovynev, 27, had to learn those lessons the hard way and, as a result, were arrested.

On Sunday, the Kovynev brothers (cousins? friends who weirdly have the same first and last names? ) visited Duluth, Georgia's Venture Cinema 12 discount theater. Once there, they weren't content to watch Snitch or Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters.

Instead, the two allegedly climbed into the ceiling of the men's bathroom, then crawled over the barrier and into the ceiling above the women's bathroom, where they proceeded to spy on the women below. Here's an illustration the theater's manager drew or explained for WSB TV in Atlanta:

As you can see, it was a very complicated operation. The ceiling tiles eventually gave way, and the two Kovynevs went crashing into one of the bathroom's stalls. Both were charged with peeping Tom and criminal damage to property. They've since been released on bond.
