Sean Young says she was sober, behaved before Oscar arrest

Actress Sean Young was among 10 people arrested during and after Sunday's Academy Awards ceremony, officials said

Actress Sean Young took to her Facebook page to criticize Academy Awards security for her arrest after the Oscar telecast Sunday.

Young was involved in a "physical altercation" and taken into custody by the person she was fighting with, police said. Police sources said it was a security guard at the ball who made the arrest.

Young has demanded an apology and on Facebook said she suffered a bruised arm during the 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," Young wrote.

She was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor battery and released on $20,000 bail about 3 a.m., according to jail records. She is scheduled to appear in court March 19.

Young was among 10 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, said LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith.
