One Direction's Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson in trouble after 'smashing up' bowling alley
The pair mangled the machinary at a US bowling alley because they decided to break the rules.
'We'd taken over a lane, played about 2 games and then got a bit bored,' admits Louis, 20.
'So we started an experiment, throwing 2 or 3 balls at the same time.'
Not unpredictably, this messed up the mechanism that clears away the pins.
'The whole things came off its hinges. It totally broke,' Louis tells the Daily Mirror.
'We got a slap on the hand and were told off by the label for that.'
Harry, 18, admitted he found it 'quite funny - but no one else thought so'.
The boys have been supporting Big Time Rush on tour and were celebrating after their final show at New York's Radio City Hall.
'Got to go now.. Last day of the tour.. Better smash it!' Louis Tweeted earlier in the day.
