He has since been arrested on the charges of felony grand theft.
The man arrested for stealing Frances McDormand's Oscars trophy filmed himself with the statue at the Oscars award ceremony on Sunday night.
The man, dressed in a tuxedo with hair held back in hairpins, is seen in the 165-seconds of footage posted to the page of a Terry Bryant Djmatari issuing the trophy and allowing bystanders to touch it.
He was caught trying to leave the party by a photographer who followed Bryant because he didn't recognize him. Officers took him into custody shortly before midnight, according to LAPD.
Police said Bryant was exiting the Governors Ball when he was photographed holding an Oscar statuette. "We got it tonight, baby".More news: Toyota Diesel Cars Will No Longer Be Sold In Europe After 2018

Unfortunately, Terry Bryant didn't get that particular memo.
A representative for the actress told USA Today: "Fran and Oscar are happily reunited and are enjoying an In-N-Out burger together".
The actress rattled off a fairly run-of-the-mill list of thank-yous, but then put her Oscar statue down and asked all the female nominees in every category to stand with her. "Meryl, if you do it, everybody else will".
