No deal yet for man charged with theft of McDormand Oscar

LOS ANGELES

The man charged with stealing Frances McDormand’s Oscar statuette at an Academy Awards after-party appeared in court Wednesday but the quick resolution to the case that was expected did not emerge.

Terry Bryant wore a gray pinstriped suit instead of the blue jail jumpsuit of his previous court appearance and smiled politely throughout the very brief hearing in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Bryant had been found eligible for so-called early disposition – a relaxing of legal formalities intended to bring a quick resolution to some cases.

But he remains charged with felony grand theft and faces up to three years in prison.

Bryant’s attorney Daniel Brookman says Bryant’s not-guilty plea stands.

Actor Corey Feldman says he was attacked

LOS ANGELES

Los Angeles police are investigating an alleged attack on actor Corey Feldman, who tweeted that he was hospitalized after being stabbed.

Officer Drake Madison says Feldman was stopped at an intersection Tuesday night when an unknown male made a stabbing motion at his stomach and fled.

Police say Feldman drove himself to a hospital. He is in stable condition.

Madison says it doesn’t appear Feldman was cut in the alleged attack.

Feldman, 46, appeared in “Stand By Me” and “Gremlins” in the 1980s.
