Sean Young says she was sober, well-behaved when arrested
Sean Young want folks to know that she was sober when she was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor battery after the Academy Awards on Sunday, and that she thinks a lot of things about the situation are "very stupid."
Young, 52, is currently out on $20,000 bail after being booked under her legal name, Mary Sean Young, at the LAPD's Hollywood Division station shortly before midnight Sunday.
She was involved in "some type of physical altercation," police told L.A. Now; Young told People magazine she "was just standing by the little line" outside the Governors Ball, for which she did not have a ticket. "I wasn't bothering anybody."
The "Blade Runner" actress and "Celebrity Rehab" alum did tell People, however, that she struck a security guard after she went to leave and he allegedly grabbed her arm.
Said Young via Facebook on Monday: "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."
Later Monday, she noted on Facebook that she was "working on not absorbing any toxic spew from this unfair and stupid media silliness," and reiterated her desire for a public apology from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Young is due in court March 19.
