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

The Los Angeles city attorney's office is planning to review any criminal accusations related to actress Sean Young's arrest Sunday after the Academy Awards.

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 Governors Ball who made the arrest.

Police continue to investigate and Los Angeles prosecutors said they will review anything they receive from police.

“We anticipate it will be sent to our office for review,” said Frank Mateljan, spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney’s office. “But we have not received any paperwork as of today.”

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, LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith said.
