Gary Alan Coe, who introduced himself as Gary from Chicago to Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel during a prank the comedian pulled, was released from prison three days before, according to WLS TV.

Reports suggest he served 20 years in the California prison system for committing multiple felonies.

He met his fiancee, Vickie, who joined him for the Hollywood bus tour that took a detour through the Oscars, while serving his time.

The couple took selfies with Denzel Washington and Gary kissed Meryl Streep's hand as he stumbled along the Academy Awards front row in disbelief as part of Kimmel's live skit.
