(Newser) Blade Runner vamp Sean Young was busted outside a post-Oscars party after she slapped a security guard when she was told to leave, according to officials. Now she's demanding an apology, reports TMZ. "She was trying to get into the party and couldn't," a Hollywood police commander tells AP. But the 52-year-old actress—who starred in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, No Way Out, Wall Street, and most recently, Celebrity Rehab—says the guards were overzealous, and she wasn't doing anything wrong. "I was just standing by the little line," says Young, who earlier in the evening had posed for photos with Angelina Jolie, Michelle Williams, and Sandra Bullock. "I wasn't bothering anybody."

She began to leave when ordered to by a guard, but he "grabbed my arm and started pulling me," says Young. "I was pulling my arm away—and I struck him." The Motion Picture Academy "needs to make a public apology on behalf of their security guard," Young tells People. She blames an Academy attorney, who she says urged one of the guards to place her under citizen's arrest. "I was well-behaved," she tells x17 Online. "It's atrocious behavior." She was booked on misdemeanor battery and released yesterday after she posted $20,000 bail. Watch Young tell TMZ what happened here.
