More problems for one-time screen starlet Sean Young, who was placed under citizen’s arrest at the official Academy Awards post-party in Los Angeles Sunday night.
The star of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, according to reports, got into a heated tiff with security guard, reportedly slapping him. Police said Young, 52, was taken into custody at 9:25 pm PT Sunday at the Governor’s Ball, in connection with investigation of misdemeanor battery.
The Blade Runner star was processed into Hollywood police station and released at 2:55 am PT Monday, according to City News Service.
Young told a news outlet upon leaving: “I’m OK … the Academy’s lawyer … recommended that a private person’s arrest be made, and I was standing outside … seeing friends going up to the Governor’s Ball. What this really means is that the Academy recommends — that its lawyers recommend — that [I] be carted off to spend four hours at the Hollywood police.
“Shame on them for that … they should fire [the lawyer.]”
Young — who was seen on Celebrity Rehab last year — has a history of past incidents at swanky Hollywood functions.
In 2006, she was booted from the Vanity Fair Oscar party, and two years later, she was ejected from the Directors Guild of America awards.
