The men threatened to kill the restaurant owner “the next time”.The attackers also destroyed a chair and damaged a table, local media reports.

Police identified the men as coming from the cantons of Bern, Fribourg and Zurich.

The regional prosecutor said they were all intoxicated, with one man testing three milligrams per millilitre on a blood alcohol test, six times the legal limit for driving.
