sean young arrested
Her rep did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
But while leaving the police station, Young told a camerman for the website that she blamed the entire encounter on the Academy lawyer.
"I was standing outside the cord and waiting and seeing friends that were going up to the Governor's Ball," she said, when she was carted off by police.
"Shame on you for that," she said of the Academy, adding that the lawyer should be fired.
According to TMZ, it was Young who was in the wrong.
The website said she was standing near the entrance posing for pictures with stars, such as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Michelle Williams and Jonah Hill and Sandra Bullock, when security guards realized she didn't have a ticket. Young was asked to leave and did so, but returned a short while later. This time, when security asked her to leave, a guard placed an arm on Young, at which point she allegedly slapped him.
She was then placed under citizen's arrest.
Young, who appeared in "Blade Runner," "No Way Out" and recently "Young and the Restless," has a history of alcohol abuse, and her 2011 stay in rehab was depicted in "Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew."
The Blade Runner actress Sean Young has been arrested after a scuffle with a security guard at the official post-Oscars party, according to police.Young, 52, was placed under citizen's arrest at the Governor's Ball at 9:25pm on Sunday after the dispute, police Cmdr. Andrew Smith said.
"She was trying to get into the party and couldn't get in," he said.
Young, who also starred in 'Stripes', was booked at the Hollywood police station for investigation of misdemeanour battery. She posted $20,000 bail and was released early Monday.
The actress was arrested quickly, said Tom Januszewski, an Associated Press business executive who witnessed the incident. He said he saw a guard subdue Young by placing his forearm on her neck and head while other guards placed her in handcuffs and led her away.
"It happened incredibly fast," he said, adding that while the guards were forceful with Young, they didn't use unnecessary force. "I thought it was incredibly well-handled."
