Sean Young - Oscars 2012: Sean Young Arrested After Fight At Governor's Ball

Los Angeles police have confirmed actress Sean Young was placed under citizen's arrest after a fight broke out at the official post-Oscars party. The 52-year-old Hollywood star, best known for her roles in Blade Runner, Stripes and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, was arrested at the Governor's Ball on Sunday evening (February 26, 2012).
According to Entertainment Weekly, Young was booked at the Hollywood police station for investigation of misdemeanour battery. She reportedly posted $20,000 bail and was released early on Monday. Police Sgt Enrique Mendoza confirmed the arrest but refused to give details of the incident, particularly who Young was brawling with. The actress had tried to crash the Vanity Fair Oscar party in 2006, and entered rehabilitation for alcohol abuse in 2008 when she was removed from the Directors Guild of American Awards. Tarrah Lee, publicist for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, is yet to comment on the matter. According to Tmz.com, the incident involved a security guard, with Young reportedly getting into a heated dispute and making contact.
This year's Governor's Ball featured a "jazz age" theme, and guests included all the big Oscar winners including Meryl Streep, Octavia Spencer as well as nominees Jessica Chastain and Michelle Williams. Elsewhere, Owen Wilson enjoyed the evening with his mother, while Christopher Plummer mixed with the likes of Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman and NICK NOLTE.
