A man at Cannes film festival was arrested after firing a starting pistol while a live TV broadcast was taking place, according to NBC News. French TV station Canal+ had been conducting an interview with actors Christoph Waltz and Daniel Auteuil in front of a crowd when the man fired two shots into the air. The actors ran for cover. "The bodyguards jumped over the barriers into the crowd and pulled him to the ground. The police arrived and told everyone to run because there was a grenade in his hand," spectator Arthur Laiguesse told Reuters. Police then arrested the man who had a knife and a dummy grenade. The festival has already seen a breach of security. Police claim that $1.4 million worth of Chopard jewelry intended for movie stars during the 12-day event had been stolen from a room at the Suite Novotel hotel overnight on Thursday.
