    Two men say they were recording footage for reality TV "You Just Got Robbed."

    Police have charged two out-of-state men with robbing two other men in western Pennsylvania by claiming they were recording video for a reality TV show called "You Just Got Robbed."

    Police in Indiana, Pa. tell The Associated Press the incident happened about 1:20 a.m. and that the suspects apparently attend a nearby technical school. They're identified as 21-year-old Randall Smith, of Templehill, Md. and 18-year-old Artie Goodwine, of Memphis, Tenn.

    Police say one of the men put the victims into headlocks while the other recorded the robbery - in which $20 was taken from one of the victims - on a cell phone.

    Online court records don't list attorneys for the men. Smith has posted bail but Goodwine remained in the Indiana County Jail on Monday, about 45 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
