The two will serve no jail time, but were fined $100 plus $191 court cost charge, as wella as one-year unsupervised probation. Guyton also received a $25 fine and $191 court cost charge for the pubic intoxication charge.
The two were arrested on Oct. 11, 2001, by Atmore Police after stealing two American flags from a storefront on Main Street.

The court date was originally set for Novemebr 9, but was pushed back.
