Sean Young, “Blade Runner” actress and “Celebrity Rehab” participant, has taken to Facebook to explain the circumstances surrounding her arrest outside the post-Oscars Governors Ball:

“I just want everyone to know that I was sober, extremely well behaved when a very stupid security guard went postal on me and then The Academy’s very stupid lawyer recommended a ‘private person’s arrest’ and I have grounds for a lawsuit against the Academy although I believe a public apology to me would be much better. I am OK and I have the Hollywood Police Stations support who very carefully and kindly photographed the bruises on my arms which this guard is responsible for doing.”

Police Cmdr. Andrew Smith explained the arrest thusly to the AP: “She was trying to get into the party and couldn’t get in.” Young was booked for “investigation of misdemeanor battery” and was released Monday after posting $20,000 bail. (Facebook; AP)
