According to celebrity news website TMZ, police sources said the men were observed “rubbing elbows with stars” on the red carpet ahead of the Oscars on Sunday evening.

When officers approached the men around 4:45 pm to ask for their identification, they flashed passes with MTV and CITI logos on them. But the passes were quickly determined to be counterfeit.

“Ze Germans were rounded up, arrested for trespassing and taken to a nearby jail,” TMZ reported.

The nine men were reportedly released on Monday morning.

No, there is a history of psycho German Men in the US:

Monica Seles being stabbed, Rockefeller of Boston, etc.

These people from Germany are going to go to jail. There is an FBI alert to closely watch German men in the US as they are radical and think they are free to do what they want and they are free from their state of control and prison which exists in Germany and they can just do what they want. They will be prosectuted to the fullest....

"There is an FBI alert to closely watch German men in the US…"

Lay off the crack, peschvogel. Your statement is ridiculous. What state of control & prison exists in Germany? The one where terrorists get 12-14 year prison terms, whereas in the US they'd get life (if not death penalty?)

There is no terror alert for all German men because they are radical, peschvogel. Not even back in '77. Put the pipe down.

Ve vill be vatching you Herrn 1FCK_1FCK. Germans, just like the Dutch and Swedes are leaving their countries and more are coming to the U.S. more than ever before. Its because of the demographic and immigration paradigm in Germany. Auch, brain drain. Germans are being closely watched in the U.S. They have ambitions which normally they could not do in their native land because of the control of the police state in Germany. In addition, they are being radicialized for the years events unfolding. Watch your TV's in April for currency reform and how to deal with riots in Germany! Gens genau!!!
