Actress Sean Young arrested for battery, released

It sounds like things might've gotten a little testy for actress Sean Young Sunday at a post-Oscars event.

CNN has confirmed that the 52-year-old "Blade Runner" actress was arrested for battery of an unnamed individual on Sunday, and was later released.

According to the Hollywood Police Department, Young "was arrested on a private citizen's arrest," but that's all the information the officials are able to provide at the moment.

TMZ is reporting that the altercation happened at the Governor's Ball, and that the incident Young's been accused of allegedly occurred with a security guard.

    Sean Young has had a long history of impulsivity, instability, high drama, and anger problems (e.g. remember the 'Catwoman' incident?). Clearly she would be diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (see also: Lindsay Lohan).

    I feel bad for her even though all this bad stuff is her doing. She just cannot let go and move on! She wants so badly to be in that A list again – to be noticed again but couldn't – it's kinda pathetic.

    Did you all forget its Hollywood? There are always 3 sides to every story, her side, their side and the truth. Of course she would be an easy target for some underpaid security guard to have a moment of glory but we all seem to forget, celebrity, non-celebrity people are people and the paparazzi is just having a field day with someone’s emotions….

    In defense of Sean, no one knows what happened in this incident. Yes maybe her behavior was questionable in the past. However, before anyone starts passing judgement on her...FIND OUT THE FACTS. And learn to question media on EVERYTHING because their main agenda is to sensationalize everything and sell whatever they can, to anyone they can. Their bottom line is $$$. plain and simple.

      You need to be cloned, like Dolly the sheep. A few times over in fact – society would be better for it. 🙂 All kidding aside, it's refreshing to see someone who doesn't get out their pitchfork and flaming torch and realizes that we may not have all the facts yet.

    Whatever the condition-she tries too hard, missing the "fix yourself first" step. The "Days of Glory Past" doesn't
    only happen to former movie stars ... it happens to a lot of snobby Prom Queens. That's the revenge of the nerds for ya.

    Judging from that photo, the woman needs a new stylist.

    I remember seeing her many years ago on a talk show - Letterman?– where she did a tap dance in an outfit she had sewn herself. Painful to warch, and memorable. She was already on a downward slide even back then.

      That you, Sean? The security guards posted at Academy Award afterparties are there to keep people who aren't on the guest list out - period. A Hollywood has-been trying to crash an a-list (even c list) party is just sad.

    Ya know, she was too old for this kind of juvenile behavior 30 years ago when she was stalking James Woods. She's waaay too old to be acting this way now.

    It just proves that maturity and wisdom are not always guaranteed to come with age. She's just a sad old lady now whose craziness isn't likely to be so easily forgiven now that her beauty has seriously faded. Unlike others in Hollywood, Sean looks OLDER than her 52 years. Then again, it's probably hard to find work that pays the money necessary for expensive plastic surgery when you're a certified lunatic.

    That's Hollywood. Once you're kicked to the curb, it's no use. Best to hang around Quentin Tarrantino who brought
    "down and out" actors back from the "dead."

      She kicked herself to the curb decades ago. She was a rising star before she started exhibiting stalking tendancies and other mental instability.

    Her part in Ace Ventura ruined it for me. I thought she was one saxy babe, now I can't get her extra package out of the
    image. She might have been testy, drunk, etc. or maybe just Hollywood (play rough types), but Sean, get a new hobby
    rather than crashing parties. Then again-she got some great headline exposure ... maybe it's not all that bad.

    I remember her from the entire "I AM CATWOMAN" phase when she tried to convince the producers and Michael Keaton to put her in Batman 2 ( during the early '90s) wearing a homemade catsuit and failed when M. Phieffer was cast.
    I liked her from "Stripes","Young Doctors in Love" and "Blade Runner", too bad she didn't make more memorable movies in the '90s, except for Ace Ventura (1994) and "Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde" (1995), she's mostly remembered for her movies from the '80s.
