6:30 AM PST -- Now we know what allegedly happened.  We're told Sean was standing near the entrance of the Governors Ball, taking pictures with friends when security guards realized she didn't have a ticket so they asked her to leave.  We're told Sean left but came back shortly thereafter, and when security asked her to leave again, a guard may have placed his hand on her arm when Sean allegedly slapped him.  She was then placed under citizen's arrest for battery.

6:10 AM PST --  We just got video of Sean leaving the LAPD Hollywood substation, where she blamed her arrest on the Academy's lawyer.

1:45 AM PST --   We just spotted Sean Young leaving the police station. She claims she was waiting with friends to enter the Governors Ball when an Oscar official suggested security make a citizen's arrest. She did not say why the official made that suggestion ... or mention any physical encounter with the security guard.

----------------------------------------------------

And the handcuffs go to ... Sean Young -- who was busted by police at the official Oscar after party for allegedly getting physical with a security guard ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us ... Young was attending the Governors Ball -- the annual schmancy Oscar party thrown by the Academy itself -- when she allegedly got into a dispute with a security guard and made contact.

We're told the "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" star was placed under citizen's arrest by security -- until LAPD arrived to take her into custody. Young was booked for misdemeanor battery.

In the hours before her arrest, Young was taking pictures with some of the biggest stars in the world ... including Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock.

this is a shame. in all of her pix, the celebs look like they're posing to be polite. its like she's an outcast teen at a party who is trying to look like she's the time of her life, for facebook. i'm embarrassed for her.

I wonder if she was wearing her home-made Catwoman suit.

All those stars who posed with her must have thought she was some producer's wife. I can't imagine any of them remembering her. All I can remember about her is how she wore a catsuit for weeks trying to get the role of Cat Woman.

Pretty sad. You notice in all the pics, the celebs kind of have this scared, slightly freaked out expression on their faces. Kind of like, let's just do this so we can go in and leave her out here.

We have to understand Miss Young has Bipolar disorder. She has to steer clear of alcohol or things like this are goint to happen. I am sure she is a very nice person when she is not involved in a conflict. Security people, police, etc, have strict protocols to follow, from which they can not deviate. They will not engage in conversation to explain themselves, and allow themselves to make compromises. This can be percieved as stubborness. A person with Bipolar disorder will feel that they are argueing with a wall, and will quickily become more and more agitated, to the point that they will lose control. Alcohol will make this happen even more quickly. Sean Young was always a favorite of mine. Actors in general, because its their job, are emotionally demostrative, and not meaning to state the obviousm dramatic, this makes great fodder for TMZ. Yet, I still can't help watching and reading. People do tend to slow down and stare at car wrecks.

How sad. Standing outside the entrance to a party she was not invited to and taking pictures with celebs to make it look like she's still one of the group. Hollywood is a cruel town.

Last time there was a post on someone being violent the person was black and most of the comments from you undercover racists were "black people are violent". Now it's a white person. No racist comments, no nothing. So I ask, what is it now? What do you call it when white people commit violent acts? I'm curious.

ARE you Kidding me?! A Security Detail at the Oscars, needs the Police to rescue them from our Starlet, the Big Bad manly-woman Sean Young??!! Granted She was dressed in high heals an evening gown, long sleeve gloves and ear rings, which must have been terrifying at the time for the Girly-man security guard that She slapped! And why wouldn't she? Asked to leave? Okay so be it, so she did. She returned, ( why who cares, there may actually be a valid reason). Any Man, gentleman or not, would not of taken offense, and would of understood the situation and handled it with dignity or at least as a professional. And not embarrassed the Academy!! nor Ms Young who was already embarrassed enough by him, in the first place!! Have they no etiquette training for hired help anymore?!

all the celebrities seem very uncomfortable posing with her for photos.. I think she was standing in front of that pretigious party w/ a photographer, and approached the celebs as they were coming into the party. They all look dumbfounded, like, what could they do but post for the picture with her, they were embarassed. They couldnt just walk past her and ignore her, she was an Oscar nominee in the past, so they had to stop for her. that is SO funny....they all look like they are in pain! lol!

Is this a remake of ZELIG? Why is there a sad old woman photoshopped into these Oscar party pics?
