Nine students were also arrested, who used fake MTV credentials to gain access to the red carpet. The students, in their 20s, were detained after they began taking pictures, drawing attention from security personnel.
Also detained was a man from Berkeley in his late 60s. He was intoxicated and wearing "a sparkly getup," a police report said.
Another half-dozen people were arrested after the ceremony was over as the theater was being cleaned, LAPD officials said.
