Nov. 20 (UPI) -- Two bodyguards for Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen are headed to jail for shooting at photographers while protecting the couple in Costa Rica in 2009.

The bodyguards have been sentenced to five years in jail for opening fire at photographers who tried to capture photos of Brady and Bundchen's wedding at a seaside home in the country.

During the 2009 incident, the photographers were confronted by the bodyguards, who demanded they hand over their cameras' memory cards. According to the complaint, after the photographers drove away, at least one guard opened fire. Neither photographer was hurt.

A court in the town of Puntarenas found Costa Rican Miguel Solis and Colombian Alexander Rivas guilty of attempted murder. Additionally, the two guards were ordered to pay 5 million colones ($10,000) to each of the two photographers. Neither Solis nor Rivas testified during the proceedings. A third man, Manuel Valverde, was acquitted.
