LAS VEGAS (AP) - A former Hells Angels chapter president and his son are going to prison for their role in a December 2008 wedding chapel brawl that left six people injured in Las Vegas.

The 57-year-old father, Charles Goldsmith, was sentenced Tuesday to two to five years for coercion and battery causing substantial bodily harm with a gang enhancement.

Thirty-three-year-old Brad Goldsmith got 16 to 48 months battery and attempted coercion, without gang enhancements.

Lawyers for both men say they've since quit the Hells Angels.

The Goldsmiths were among 13 wedding party members including several Hells Angels seen on video brawling with rival Mongols members arriving for another ceremony at A Special Memory Wedding Chapel.

Seven other men have pleaded guilty and been sentenced. One died.

Two are due for trial next month.
