UPDATE 3/11/13
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Two men are headed to prison for getting into a fight with a wedding party at a bar in Huntington.

Lazarus Poindexter and Ricky Harmon were sentenced Monday. Both of the men received two to 10 years behind bars.

The men were bouncers at Silver City in Huntington and got into a fight with a wedding party in June 2010.

The bar's owner says the wedding party refused to leave when the bar closed and broke down the door when the two men forced the party outside.

Both men made Kennedy Pleas in the case -- meaning they accepted the punishment, without admitting guilt.
