How to spot a scammer and his entourage at the Oscars
A man posing as a doctor and asking for money to treat an injury that he claims to have caused at the Golden Globes in Hollywood, California, was arrested by police Friday after the man posted videos to social media showing himself at the ceremony dressed in a blue suit and a red wig.
Police arrested 31-year-old Joshua R. Williams, a U.S. citizen from Houston, after he was seen wearing a black suit and red wig at the annual awards ceremony at the Pasadena Convention Center, police said.
Williams was arrested in his car and faces charges of making false statements to a law enforcement officer, making a false statement to a public servant, falsifying records and filing a false tax return, police spokesman Sgt. Brian McQuade said.
He also faces a charge of using a computer to commit a felony, McQuades said.
McQuades could not say if Williams was also a convicted felon.
Williams is being held in the Harris County Jail on a $1 million bond.
