SAN MATEO, Calif. -- Two Northern California men are charged with misdemeanors for selling a lost Apple iPhone 4 they found last year in a bar.

Hogan is charged with one count of misappropriation of lost property. Wallower is charged with misappropriation of lost property and possession of stolen property.

The iPhone prototype was found in a German-theme Redwood City bar in March 2010. Prosecutors say Hogan sold it to the Gizmodo.com gadget blog for $5,000.

Former Apple CEO Steve Jobs called personally to get the phone back.

The blogger wasn't charged.
