Actress Sean Young won't face charges in Oscars altercation

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

Actress Sean Young, who was arrested at an Academy Awards party, will not face charges, according to the L.A. city attorney's office.

Young was involved in a "physical altercation" and taken into custody by the person she was fighting with, police said. A security guard at the Governors Ball made the arrest.

John Franklin, a spokesman for the city attorney, cited insufficient evidence in the decision not to charge Young.

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.

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, LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith said.
