The SU(2) gauge theory regularized by Wilson's space-time lattice is studied by the Monte Carlo method. The link variables are taken to be in the quintet representation. The result suggests that a first order phase transition occurs at the equivalent inverse temperature β5≃3.7. Moreover a long-lived false vacuum is found for β5\gtrsim5.
