Frances Mc Dormand at the Academy Awards Governors Ball

The actress McDormand, who received the award "Oscar" this year for best actress in the movie "Three billboards on the border of Ebbing, Missouri", stole the statue, writes NME.

Los Angeles police say Bryant had a ticket for the ball and he quickly yielded it when confronted by officers.

Los Angeles Superior Court Deborah Brazil ruled Bryant, 47, did not pose a risk to the public and said he will be released on his own recognizance. Bryant remains behind bars on $20,000 (€16,100) bail.

The actress clutched her award through the post-win press conferences and took it with her to the annual Governors Ball celebration.

In what is perhaps the most freakish story to come out of this year's Academy Awards, Frances McDormand's Oscar statue was briefly stolen from her table during the Governor's Ball, the official afterparty for the ceremony.

Video shot by The Associated Press appears

Although Frances said to let him go, TMZ reported this morning that the man "has been booked on felony grand theft".

Mr Brookman addressed the footage, saying: "There's a difference between holding an Oscar and what he is charged with, so that will play out in court". He took the Oscar off the table where Frances was sitting and videotaped himself with the award in hand.

Bryant could get three years in jail if convicted.

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. We got it tonight, baby!

McDormand celebrated her reunion with her Oscar with a double cheeseburger from In-N-Out, according to her rep. He was caught by a photographer who spotted him at the Governors Ball with the award. "This is mine", he said, before planting a kiss on the Oscar's head.
