BOULDER, CO. -

Two Boulder men accused of spraying a woman and a group of fraternity members with bear repellent before crashing their scooter because the caustic fumes blew back at them have pleaded guilty.

The Daily Camera reports 21-year-old Robert Normand McManus pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal trespassing. Meanwhile, Stephen Armbruster, also 21, pleaded guilty to third-degree assault.

Prosecutors say the men, after a day of drinking, sprayed the repellent into a house with the woman inside and then sprayed the group of fraternity members. The men told investigators they were seeking "retribution" after someone stole items from a fraternity house yard, though they did not know who committed the thefts.

McManus and Armbruster received a deferred sentence.
