    A Maryland man is one of two men accused of claiming to be recording a video for a reality TV show while perpetrating a robbery in western Pennsylvania.

    Randall Smith, 21, of Temple Hills, Md., and 18-year-old Artie Goodwine, of Memphis, Tenn., are accused of robbing two men about 1:20 a.m. Monday in Indiana, Pa., about 45 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

    One of the suspects put the victims into headlocks while the other recorded the robbery -- in which $20 was taken from one of the victims -- on a cellphone. They allegedly said they were recording for a show called “You Just Got Robbed.”

    The suspects apparently attend a technical school in the area, police told the Associated Press.

    Smith posted bail Monday.
