Ten People Arrested at the Oscars Last Night, Including Sean Young

Just because the Oscar telecast was boring last night doesn’t mean the actual show was dull. Ten people were arrested last night at the Oscars, including Blade Runner actress Sean Young.

From the LA Times:

Young… was placed under citizen’s arrest and taken to the Hollywood division of the Los Angeles Police Department, according to Officer Wendy Reyes.

Young was involved in “some type of physical altercation” and taken into custody by the person she was fighting with, police said.

Police sources said it was a security guard at the ball who arrested Young. Young was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor battery and released on $20,000 bail about 3 a.m., according to jail records. She is to appear in court March 19.

Young, meanwhile, told X17 the incident was the fault of an overzealous Academy security guard. She blames the Academy and its lawyers and demanded an apology.

“I was well-behaved. It was fine… and the surveillance tape will bear that out… It’s atrocious behavior on the Academy’s part.”

An Academy spokesperson told People that the incident took place outside their event and they were not the ones who pressed charges.
