Sean Young is now asking for a “public apology,” hours after being arrested at an Oscars party.
On Sunday, the Blade Runner actress was placed under citizen’s arrest at the Governors Ball — the Academy Awards’ official after-party — and then booked for investigation of misdemeanor battery after she slapped a security guard.
Today, Young is lashing out at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, as well as trying to clear her name.
Young, who was on “Celebrity Rehab,” posted on Facebook “that I was sober, extremely well behaved.”
She says she received “bruises” on her arms after allegedly being manhandled by a guard who “went postal on me” outside the party.
Young further claims the ”Academy’s very stupid lawyer recommended a ‘private person’s arrest’ and I have grounds for a lawsuit,” but instead she says she simply wants “a public apology.”
The Ace Ventura: Pet Detective star makes no reference, however, to trying to crash the Oscars’ official bash.
The Academy said in a statement, “There was an incident with Ms. Young outside the Academy’s Governors Ball,” noting, “It was not the Academy who pressed charges.”
