PUNTARENAS, Costa Rica, Nov. 16 (UPI) -- Two bodyguards got prison terms in Costa Rica for firing at photographers trying to get shots of the wedding of NFL star Tom Brady and model Gisele Bundchen.

Miguel Solis of Costa Rica and Alexander Rivas of Colombia were found guilty of attempted murder Friday in Puntarenas and sentenced to five years, Sky News reported. A third man charged in the incident was acquitted.

Brady, the New England Patriots' star quarterback, and the Brazilian supermodel Bundchen were married in 2009 at a seaside house in Costa Rica. The bodyguards approached paparazzi during the festivities, demanding they hand over their cameras' memory cards, the report said.

Police said a shot was fired at the two photographers as they left. Neither was injured.

Solis and Rivas were ordered to pay $10,000 (5 million colones) each in restitution to the photographers.
