LOS ANGELES– A man accuseded of swiping and taking off with Frances McDormand’s Oscar throughout an Academy Awards after-party is set to make his first look in court.
Terry Bryant is anticipated to be arraigned in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom on Wednesday.
District attorneys on Tuesday charged Bryant with felony grand theft, a criminal offense that might get him three years in jail.
The 47-year-old Bryant remains jailed on $20,000 bail. It’s unclear if he has worked with a lawyer who can comment.
Authorities state Bryant took McDormand’s finest starlet statuette Sunday night during the Governors Ball, the official post-Oscars party.
Associated Press video reveals what appears to be Bryant going out with the trophy and proudly holding it high.
A photographer followed Bryant and faced him, and he was arrested.
