Sean, 52, left, but apparently came back to the entrance a short time later. So, when she was told to leave again, a guard possibly put her arm on the actress and she supposedly slapped him across the face. Upon the alleged attack, Sean was put under citizens arrest and booked for battery.
A police officer by the name of Rosario Herrera confirmed what happened to People magazine, saying that, “Sean Young was arrested last night at 10:30 p.m. for battery at the 1700 block of Highland Ave. She was placed under citizen’s arrest and was later released from the Hollywood station.”
