LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Latest on the arrest of a man accused of stealing Frances McDormand's best actress Oscar statuette (all times local):

7:30 p.m.

Video captured by The Associated Press appears to show the man who authorities say stole Frances McDormand's best actress Oscar walking out of the official Academy Awards after-party.

The video, shot late Sunday night as many guests were leaving the Governors Ball, shows a man in a tuxedo who appears to be 47-year-old Terry Bryant holding an Oscar statuette highly and proudly as an onlooker cheers.

Walking quickly, he nearly bumps into a woman before letting her pass, then quickly glances around him before walking out of frame. He's prominently holding the Oscar the entire time.

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

Bryant remains in jail on $20,000 bail.
