A spokeswoman with Madrid's police said Friday that the 50 year-old Spaniard had arrived the night before at a police station accompanied by an organiser of the awards, which are the country's equivalents to Hollywood's Oscars.

He didn't have a previous criminal record and is being interrogated, the spokeswoman said, speaking anonymously in line with police internal protocol.
