Actress Sean Young will not face charges after she was arrested at an Academy Awards party for slapping a security person, Los Angeles city attorney’s office says.
As previous reports have stated, Sean Young was involved in a “physical altercation” and taken into custody by the person she was fighting with. A security guard at the Governors Ball made the arrest after Young slapped him when the security asked for her ticket and she did not have it. John Franklin, a spokesman for the city attorney said, “Our prosecutors declined to file charges due to insufficient evidence.”
The 52-year-old actress, who starred in ‘Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,’ has demanded an apology and on Facebook said she suffered a bruised arm during the altercation with security at the Academy Awards party.
“I just want everyone to know that I was sober, extremely well-behaved when a very stupid security guard went postal on me,” Sean Young wrote.
Sean Young was one of the ten people arrested during and after Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony, officials said. Most of the arrests, which included misdemeanors and felonies, were for fraudulent, lapsed or nonexistent credentials, Los Angeles Police Department Cmdr. Andrew Smith said.
However, it appears Sean Young is still suffering after she was spotted wearing a neck brace last Wednesday. The mother-of-two revealed that she refused to take painkillers for the injuries she apparently sustained during the incident at the Academy Awards. Young claims she was hurt in the altercation with security guards.
Sean Young wrote on her Facebook: “My neck is killing me, and my arms are still sore from Sunday night. I think when those security guards descended upon me, I got hurt. I went to the doctor’s but I’m in agony… I can’t believe those barbarians… I refuse to take any painkillers.”

After the arrest of actress Sean Young at the Governor’s Ball after-party of the Academy Awards on Sunday, she denies the allegations thrown at her and claims she is innocent and sober at the time of her arrest.
According to the reports, Young was arrested after she got into a violent altercation with the security at the Governor’s Ball after-party of the Academy Awards, who claims the actress did not have a ticket, so they asked her to leave. In her defense, Sean Young said that she was about to leave when the guard grabbed her arm and started pulling her. Young added that when she turned around to pull her arm away, she struck the security.
The 52-year-old Sean Young took to her Facebook page to criticize the Academy Awards security for her arrest after the Oscar telecast Sunday and even demanded an apology as she claims she suffered a bruised arm during the said altercation with security.
“I just want everyone to know that I was sober, extremely well behaved when a very stupid security guard went postal on me and then The Academy’s very stupid lawyer recommended a ‘private person’s arrest’ and I have grounds for a lawsuit against the Academy Awards, although I believe a public apology to me would be much better. I am OK and I have the Hollywood Police Station’s support who very carefully and kindly photographed the bruises on my arms which this guard is responsible for doing,” Sean Young wrote.
According to jail records, the ‘No Way Out’ star was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor battery and released on $20,000 bail about 3 a.m. Sean Young is scheduled to appear in court March 19. Young says police also took photographs of bruises on her arm and hinted at legal action against the Academy Awards unless she gets a public apology.
Young was among 10 people arrested during and after Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony, officials said. LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith said that most of the arrests, which included misdemeanors and felonies, were for fraudulent, lapsed or nonexistent credentials.
Sean Young, who rose to fame in Blade Runner playing opposite Harrison Ford, has seen her career fade of late – to such an extent that she recently agreed to appear in the reality show Skating With the Stars.

Actress Sean Young was arrested by the police after she got into a violent altercation with one of the security guards when she tried to enter an Academy Awards after-party. According to the reports, Young was standing near the entrance of the Governor’s Ball, taking pictures with friends when security guards realized the actress did not have a ticket so they asked her to leave. Sean Young left, only to come back shortly thereafter, and when security asked her to leave again, a guard may have placed his hand on her arm when Sean allegedly slapped him.
Officer Wendy Reyes said that the 52-year-old Sean Young was placed under citizen’s arrest and taken to the Hollywood division of the Los Angeles Police Department. The arrest of Young took place about 10:30 p.m. in the 1700 block of Highland Avenue, which includes the Hollywood and Highland Center, the site of the Oscars and the Academy Awards after-party.
According to police sources, it was a security guard at the Academy Awards after-party who made the arrest on Sean Young. Additionally, the sources said Young was one of ten people arrested in connection with Sunday night’s Academy Awards ceremony. Most of the arrests included charges of trespassing, robbery and forgery related to fake credentials. Sean Young was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor battery and was later released on a $20,000 bail about 3 a.m., as stated in her jail records. Young is due to appear in court March 19.
The actress told People magazine the security guard was at fault. “I started to leave and [the guard] grabbed my arm and he started pulling me. And I turned around and I was pulling my arm away -– and I struck him. They need to make a public apology on behalf of their security guard.”
Sean Young, best known for movies such as “Blade Runner,” “Ace Ventura” and “Wall Street,” entered treatment for alcoholism after she had an outburst at the Directors Guild of America awards in Century City in 2008. Press representatives at the time released a statement saying the actress had “struggled against the disease for many years.”
