Sean Young has been released from the Hollywood LAPD police station after being taken into custody for reportedly slapping a security guard outside the Academy Awards' Governors Ball last night.

We caught the actress at her Santa Monica home early this morning and she told us all about the incident and showed us bruises she claims were sustained during an altercation with a guard.

Young was outside the Oscars bash, taking photos with fellow celebs, when security guards asked the 52-year-old Blade Runner actress to leave the party because she didn't have a ticket, according to TMZ.

That's when the actress allegedly struck the guard and was placed under citizen's arrest for misdemeanor battery.

Young says the arrest is the fault of the Academy's lawyer.
