'A Star Is Born' Cinematographer Not to Be Released Without Bail, Prosecutors Demand

Matthew Libatique, who got arrested in Poland for assaulting paramedics, has been released without paying a fee, but authorities are challenging the court ruling.

AceShowbiz - Prosecutors in Poland are challenging a court ruling allowing "A Star Is Born" cinematographer Matthew Libatique to be released without bail following an arrest for assault.

The Oscar-nominated cameraman was detained in the country on Tuesday, November 13 following reports suggesting he attacked paramedics and police officers who were called to a hotel to deal with an intoxicated guest.

The 50 year old, who was in the country to attend the Camerimage International Film Festival, was charged over the incident and released on Thursday.

However, authorities objected to the judge's decision not to set bail, and now prosecutors are seeking to reverse the ruling allowing Libatique to walk free without paying a fee, which is typically used to guarantee a suspect's future appearance in court.

He faces up to three years in prison if convicted of the alleged assault.
