Sean Young

Arrested for Oscar Party Fight

Allegedly Slapped Guard

2/27/2012 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


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.

The way the comments go is so hypocritical. If this was a black entertainer, people would make snide smart@$$ racist comments. Crazy ass Sean Young gets a pass. She's so crazy Tim Burton thinks she's crazy.

Its obviously the powers of those behind the Academy Awards have blackballed if not actually blacklisted Sean Young. Or otherwise known as: "someone up there sure doesn't like me". In that sense, I can understand Young's frustration. She knows that she's on the OUTS with the whole industry. And that can be so terrible for someone who so terribly wanted to be a bonafide movie star. Shows how the Academy and the industry as a whole can treat someone horribly while sucking up to others sickeningly. They don't care about the general welfare of anyone. And she wasn't doing anything but adding to the photo ops OUTSIDE of a party anyway. To strong-arm her and treat her like unwanted garbage was totally unnecessarily humiliated I would have to think. What crummy behavior when they KNOW who she is (unlike tossing out an unknown crasher). The Academy ought to apologize to Young for treating someone so shabbily rather than have their security press charges. And I'm not even a Young fan other than in the spirit of human dignity.

In defense of Sean --- i'd have done same thing if some dumb-**** rent-a-cop grabbed my arm . Guaranteed. And most of you would do the same. I don't understand why they didn't just let her hang ... She was in Blade Runner, for ****'s sake !

Sean's apparently off her psych meds again. Everyone in Hollywood knows you don't show up without a ticket. Only a looney would do that, and then stand on the red carpet taking photos with starts like a tourist! She wasn't fully lucid but didn't appear drunk. Prescription meds maybe? Someone needs to reign this poor girl in and get her help. She's still a legend in her own mind!

She has not been relevant in the entertainment industry for a long time. How did she get invited or get into to any of these parties?

What a sad sack of a loser. Look at her still trying to be relevant, leaning in to those photos that she obviously begged for. Nobody looks like they're welcoming her in the shots. You're a has-been, Sean. Go away.

Sean Young is a good actress - they should treat her with respect, not throw her out of the party. She is not the first actress to have issues, so how about some support from her colleagues. Give her a part in a good movie, give her a break. She is an orignal. We love her in Canada!
