Red Carpet Arrest at Academy Awards

3/8/2010 11:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Nicole Richie wasn't the only person who looked out of place at The Oscars -- TMZ has learned cops had to spring into action Sunday when a non-Hollywood type ran onto the red carpet.



It all went down around 1:30 PM PST -- right before the stars began to arrive.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they believe a 28-year-old dude scaled a six or seven foot fence, got on to the red carpet and began "skipping."

We're told he then broke in to a run but cops immediately caught up with him and escorted the dude to the ground.

The man was arrested for trespassing. He's currently being held on $5,000 bail.

No surprise that some nuts might come out to play. Thankfully if anyone worse showed up the FBI was there to help keep a watch on the large crowds.

Watching the academy awards is like watching paint dry, so boring. It reminds me of a 70's game show, it just didn't keep up with the times. Here's an idea, scrap that stupid film montage they do every year, it's the same old tired clips. Also shorten the dance sequence, the show is just too long and boring.
