Sean Young Says She Could Sue The Academy
Despite being arrested and booked on charges of battery, Sean Young thinks the Academy owes her an apology. The actress was lingering outside an Oscar after party when a security guard asked her if she had a ticket. She did not and during the subsequent confrontation, the security guard allegedly put his hand on Young’s arm and received a slap across the face for his trouble. A nearby Academy official reportedly told the aforementioned guard to perform a citizen’s arrest, and that’s when the police became involved.
The incident led many observers to speculate on Young’s sobriety. Today, she took to Facebook to answer those charges and deliver a threat to the Academy. You can check out a portion of her statement below…
”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.”
Young went on to say pictures were taken of bruises she suffered during the skirmish, but based on her words, it’s clear she’d rather be formally acknowledged by the Academy. I highly doubt that’ll happen. Young was not invited to the party she was lingering outside of, and she reportedly slapped a security guard. Whether he touched her arm or not, she was the one that got arrested. So, even if this threatened lawsuit progresses, it’s going to be quite an uphill battle.
We’ll let you know if the Academy decides to make peace or if Young moves forward with her threat.
