An appropriate number of guys were arrested when a fight broke out at a Five Guys restaurant in Florida on Wednesday. 

Police apprehended three juvenile males and two adult males — a total of five guys — following a lunchtime brawl at the burger chain's location in Stuart, Fla., according to the Orlando Sentinel

Witnesses said the incident started after one man threw a cup in another's face. That escalated to a door being slammed into someone's face, and soon an all-out fight began, according to the arrest report

Stuart police were quick to joke about the irony of the incident, taking to Facebook with news of the brawl. 

"Can you guess how many guys were arrested at this location on Wednesday?" the department's page said.   

All five men were charged with affray, which is described under Florida state law as a first-degree misdemeanor involving a fight between two or more individuals. The crime is technically punishable by up to one year in prison. 

The two adult males were booked and sent to Martin County Jail. The three juvenile men were booked, fingerprinted and later released to their parents.

Five Guys, originally founded in Arlington, Va., in 1986, has more than 1,500 locations worldwide, according to the restaurant's website.
