Arnold bids hasta la vista to 2 convicted paparazzi

Arnold Schwarzenegger and wife Maria Shriver hope the conviction of two photographers who chased them down sends a message to "those who hunt down celebrities."

Giles Harrison, 29, and Andrew O'Brien, 31, were found guilty Monday of misdemeanor false imprisonment stemming from a May run-in with the couple. They boxed in the couple's Mercedes-Benz with their car in an effort to videotape them outside their son's Santa Monica preschool. The photographers wanted to get the first pictures of Schwarzenegger after he underwent heart surgery.The photographers face a maximum two years in jail for the false imprisonment convictions, and Harrison faces 90 days for a reckless driving conviction. They are to be sentenced Feb. 23. Both plan to appeal.
