Sean Young was placed under citizen’s arrest Sunday night following an altercation at the Hollywood & Highland theater, where a post-Oscars celebration was under way, police told The Hollywood Reporter.
The actress, known for her roles in Blade Runner, Wall Street and other ’80s films, was booked for misdemeanor battery around 10:30 p.m. and later released. An LAPD spokesperson did not give further details.
According to The Associated Press, citing City News Service, Young posted $20,000 bail and was out of jail around 3 a.m. Monday. Young, 52, had been arrested at 9:25 p.m. at the star-studded Governors Ball, the Oscars’ official party.
Meanwhile, TMZ reported that Young allegedly slapped a security guard at the soiree, resulting in her arrest. The incident occurred after the guard noticed that actress — who was standing near the Governors’ entrance — did not have a ticket for the event and twice asked her to leave, TMZ said.
A representative for the actress could not immediately be reached.
Young, who has tried to live down a reputation as somewhat of a loose cannon, made headlines in 2006 when she attempted to get into the ultra-VIP Vanity Fair Oscar party without an invite. Two years later, she entered rehab for alcohol abuse after being asked to leave the DGA Awards.
