Actress Sean Young wants the Motion Picture Academy to apologize for an incident that resulted in her arrest on the night of the Oscars, CBS News reports.
As we reported previously, the “No Way Out” and “Blade Runner” star was booked Sunday night on a misdemeanor battery charge after a confrontation with security at the Governors Ball, the Academy’s official post-Oscars party.
The actress posted an entry today on her Facebook page about the incident, writing: "Waiting on word from The Academy on a public apology. I think they have figured out it was in fact [their] security guards fault and may indeed feel they should issue an apology to me. I will keep you posted."
Young, 52, was released early Monday after a few hours in jail, reportedly after posting $20,000 bail.
On her Facebook page, she wrote: "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."
