Thread: Don't screw with the rich

Felony charges. Bail set at 20,000 for this "theft" . That's more bail cheese than domestic abuse or assults you see in the papers.


SOURCE: LA TIMES

A Los Angeles man accused of stealing Frances McDormand's Oscar and bragging about the prize in a Facebook video is facing a felony grand theft charge, officials said Tuesday.

Prosecutors charged Terry Bryant with a single felony count for taking the bronze statuette because it is worth more than $950, said the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.

Bryant is accused of stealing McDormand's lead actress prize at the Governors Ball on Sunday, after he took time to videotape himself gloating to others at the party about the prize his "team" was taking home.

He was arrested at 11:50 p.m. at the party site, which is inside the Hollywood & Highland center.

The 47-year-old was being held on $20,000 bail. He is due to appear in a downtown courtroom Wednesday for his arraignment. He faces up to three years in prison if convicted.

A photographer stopped Bryant before he could take off with the statuette, LAPD Sgt. Meghan Aguilar said. She said the photographer did not recognize Bryant as one of the winners, so followed him and took the statue from him without any resistance. The photographer then notified security, who apprehended Bryant.

Bryant had a legitimate ticket to the party, Aguilar said. Sources said Bryant appeared to have consumed a lot of alcohol.

The department has seen the Facebook video of Bryant claiming the Oscar was his.

In the video, the man who appears to also go by the name DJ Matari gloated and tried to find out the address of Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel's party.

"Lookit baby, my team got this tonight. This is mine. We got it tonight, baby," he says before kissing the statue. "Governors Ball, baby. Who wants to wish me congratulations?" Hoots and air kisses followed. He said at one point he had won it for "music," and later that he'd won for "best producer."

The statue was lifted just after McDormand had it engraved at the official Oscars after-party, and she still didn't have it with her at the Vanity Fair party later in the evening. More than 70 Oscars have been stolen over the years, including 55 stolen in transit in 2000.

McDormand said she did not want anyone charged in connection with the theft. But when it comes to Oscars, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences controls the rights and was listed as the victim in the police report.


The academy has not said how Bryant got a ticket to the ball. But Bryant is a self-declared music artist, disc jockey and independent journalist.

Bryant's social media pages show him at red carpet events and awards shows, and he attended the Screen Actors Guild Awards this year. He is photographed on his Instagram alongside Beyonce, Kimmel and Paris Hilton, among others.

But he also has a minor criminal past in Oregon, with arrests from 1999 to 2002 for criminal mischief and theft.

Another clueless post from you.

Don't know her worth but this:

Why did you put this in quotation marks? Are you trying to say this wasn't theft?

Would you feel the same way about someone ripping off the platinum Eat A Peach at an ABB party?

Says the guy who supports an administration made up of people that made fortunes screwing people. Also, maybe think twice before you sympathize with a career thief just because the victim is an actor. Because stealing is bad.

Also, $20K bail isn't that high or unreasonable. It's not about financial means, it's typically about the crime, or as the article states, past criminal history. But you probably wouldn't know that...

I think Goob was somehow bashing Hollywood liberals with this. He has been obsessing on California lately.

I bet if it was the platinum disc of "Sweet Home Alabama" stolen from a Lynyrd Skynyrd awards ceremony in Jacksonville, Goob would be ok with the death penalty.

The Hollywood Celebrity Liberals you lefties worship needed 500 LA Police Officers to protect them during their "bow before me" show to themselves.

So guns are like Santa and Big Foot? Some people just don't believe in them?

This is kind of a weird thing to say because it A) interjects a completely unrelated issue (gun control) to a robbery that McDormand isn't too concerned about; and B) supposes anyone has a problem with trained officers carrying firearms, an argument I have never heard anyone make ever. If you have an unrelated axe to grind, why not start a new thread?

Goobs, Mule, and BIGV are all worked up on the side of the thief more than the victims McDormand and the Academy are about their loss. It's bizarre.

Ever notice that the celebrities screaming for gun control (taking guns away from law-abiding citizens) are surrounded by security carrying semi-automatic weapons?

No, but that's not what you and Mule are talking about. Mule referred to the heavy LA Police security presence and you referred to the LA Police officers' guns. I can't respond to what you haven't yet said.

So, the only people who should be allowed to have guns of any type are professionally trained people who pass psychological tests?

Show me where the 2nd amendment states this.

How about you show me where I stated this, because I have no idea what you are talking about.

Clearly BIGV thinks Frances McDormand should have shot the thief to death.

And not the schools.
The left's position to keep the schools unprotected is typical for the weak.
Dead school children, dead black people in the cities run by Democrats and dead babies.

The theft must have been done by an illegal alien so none of the 500 LA Police Officers would stop them.

I wouldn't jump to that conclusion. No mention of the perp Terry Bryant's citizenship in the article. Most likely a U.S. citizen.

btw, he was released without bail, after testimony of his good character by his rabbi:

So much for those rich Hollywood Lefty Libs puttin the screws to the little guy.

Hey, now we can rip on them for being too soft on the guy!

I could have sworn this thread was about the theft of an Oscar.

Someone needs to take his Ritalin.
