LOS ANGELES (AP/KDKA) – Los Angeles police say a man has been arrested for stealing Frances McDormand’s Oscars trophy after the Academy Awards.
Officer Rosario Herrera, a police spokeswoman, says 47-year-old Terry Bryant was arrested Sunday night on suspicion of felony grand theft. She says he was being held on $20,000 bail Monday morning.
Authorities say the Oscar was allegedly stolen during the Governors Ball after party. Herrera said Bryant had a ticket for the event.
A man named Terry Bryant Djmatari posted a video on Facebook showing him holding a statuette saying, “Got this tonight! This is mine!” At one point he says he won for “music,” then later tells someone he won “Best Producer.”
McDormand received the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”
A telephone number for Bryant couldn’t immediately be located and it wasn’t clear if had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
