Blade Runner Actress Sean Young was arrested after she got into a brawl with security services at the official post Academy Awards party. Young was placed under arrest at the Governor’s Ball at 9:25 p.m. Sunday after the dispute. The Governor’s Ball is where the official after party of the Academy Awards is held.
Police commander Andrew Smith said.
“She was trying to get into the party and couldn’t get in,”
Young, who has starred in “Blade Runner” and “Stripes,” in the 80’s was charged with misdemeanor battery. She posted a $20,000 bail and was released from custody.
The actress was taken into custody quickly, said Tom Januszewski, an Associated Press business executive who witnessed the incident. He said he saw a guard subdue Young by placing his forearm on her neck and head while other guards placed her in handcuffs and led her away.
Januszewski said in an interview after the event,
“It happened incredibly fast. I thought it was incredibly well-handled.”
Young was dressed to impress in a full white ball gown and a fur neck warmer.
This is not the first time Young has had issues trying to get into awards show parties. The actress tried to crash the Vanity Fair Oscar party in 2006. She was tossed out of the Directors Guild of America awards in 2008 at which time she went into treatment for alcohol abuse.
