Prosecutors in Poland are seeking to have bail set for an Oscar-nominated American cinematographer after a court ordered his release from the jail where he was held for allegedly attacking paramedics.
A spokeswoman for prosecutors in the city of Bydgoszcz, Agnieszka Adamska-Okonska, on Friday told Polish media that the prosecutors disagreed with the court’s decision to release Matthew Libatique without bail a day earlier.
Libatique was charged Wednesday with assaulting one of the paramedics who responded to a hotel where he was seen staggering.
The lenser was in Poland as an honorary guest at the Camerimage international film festival. Libatique was nominated for an Academy Award for the 2010 film Black Swan and was the cinematographer for Bradley Cooper’s recent remake of A Star Is Born.
The festival’s closing ceremony was Saturday evening.
