Two men have been arrested in New York for attempting to sell Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's wedding video back to the couple for $1m (580,000).

Tito Moses and Steven Wortman allegedly attempted to ransom the video after trying to sell it to US media outlets.

A copy of the couple's wedding video was in a laptop computer stolen from Mr Anthony's car in New Jersey in October.

The pair have been arraigned on charges of conspiracy, attempted grand theft and possession of stolen property.

According to a criminal complaint filed against them, Mr Moses, 31, and Mr Wortman, 49, unsuccessfully tried to sell the video to media outlets including People magazine, Us Weekly and the Access Hollywood TV show before approaching Mr Anthony's production company.

A New York police detective, posing as an associate of Mr Anthony, engaged in a series of negotiations between 20 and 27 December before the pair were arrested.

Mr Anthony and Ms Lopez were married in June 2004 in a ceremony at her Los Angeles home.
