Alleged Oscar Thief To Appear In Court

The man accused of stealing Frances McDormand's Oscar will deny the charges against him.

He has been held on $20,000 bail since his arrest Sunday night for allegedly lifting McDormand's Oscar statuette, which she had just won for her work in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri".

Associated Press video shows what appears to be Bryant walking out with the trophy and proudly holding it high before being confronted and arrested.

Terry Bryant - who bragged about taking the statuette on Facebook - was charged with felony theft because the bronze award is worth more than $950 and will be arraigned in court on Wednesday (07.03.18).

According to Los Angeles police officer Sgt. Meghan Aguilar, a photographer had stopped Bryant from leaving the party with the award because they did not recognise him as a victor, so followed the DJ - who had a legitimate ticket to the party - and took the statuette from him without any resistance. It doesn't look like she knows him, but Bryant is clearly trying to make it seem like he's part of her entourage. This is mine. We got it tonight, baby.

A photographer who works for celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck subsequently took a photo of Bryant holding the Oscar while apparently making his way toward the exit and helped security detain him until police arrived, according to reports from the scene.

He claims to be a "producer, Alist Entertainment journalist, TV Film & Music Producer, A&E Editor Actor, TV Host, UN Ambassador" on Instagram. Inside Edition, which aired mugshots of Bryant from 1999 to 2002, reported he has a record of theft and assault.
