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.

Jennifer, You're dumb. Please go kill yourself or take out your ovaries to prevent you from breeding.

The Oscars is a nothing event for nobodies. Television these days is better than most movies. The movies are just a money-making export product for the USA.

If he can't afford the bond, he should carry the silliness to its' logical conclusion and demand a jury trial.... it's his right.

A "Non-Hollywood" type???

WTF does THAT mean?

I guess a typical "Hollywood" type would be jewish, or black, or gay, or lesbian or a scientologist, or a Satan worshiper, or a felon.

By the way...the idiots on TMZ are "Non-Hollywood" types.
