The city attorney's office won't be pressing charges against Sean Young after she showed up without a ticket to an Academy Awards after-party and got into a fight with a security guard.A security guard at the Governors Ball placed her under citizens arrest after the Oscars but the city attorney won't be bringing a suit because there was insufficient evidence, the office told the Los Angeles Times.

Young, best known for her roles in Blade Runner and Ace Ventura, has been demanding an apology from the Academy on Facebook, and threatening to sue if she doesn't get one.

This Thursday she posted a picture of herself lying in bed with her poodle with the status: "Oh the PAIN of recovering from rent of cops!"
