Actress Sean Young was arrested on Sunday night following the Oscars, apparently for trying to enter a post Oscars party that she was not inviting to, in a move which California lawbooks unofficially refer to as “Lindsay Lohaning.” Now, she’s demanding an apology for the debacle, and threatening a lawsuit.
The Blade Runner star (yeah, that was 30 years ago, but name a better movie that she’s starred in. Ace Ventura?) apparently was “placed under citizen’s arrest at the Governors Ball at 9:25 p.m” on Sunday night when “she was trying to get into the party and couldn’t get in,” according to police Cmdr. Andrew Smith.
Young was then booked at the Hollywood police station due to misdemeanor battery, after allegedly slapping a security guard who wouldn’t let her enter. She then posted $20,000 bail was released early Monday morning.
Now, Young is demanding that she be given an apology by The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, according to her Facebook page, which currently states she is “waiting on word from The Academy on a public apology…I think they have figured out it was in fact there security guards fault and may indeed feel they should issue an apology to me. I will keep you posted.”
She then explained:
“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 although I believe a public apology to me would be much better. I am OK and I have the Hollywood Police Stations support who very carefully and kindly photographed the bruises on my arms which this guard is responsible for doing.”
What do you make of the incident?
