Sean Young is confident that there's a way out of this one.

The actress, Celebrity Rehab alum and onetime award-show heckler was arrested last night outside of the Governors Ball for allegedly getting into it with a security guard after he asked her to leave upon finding out she didn't have a ticket to get inside the Academy Awards' official afterparty.

The incident prompted rumors that Young had fallen off the wagon or was otherwise under the influence—but she insists that she was both sober and not at fault.

"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 wrote on Facebook today.

"I am OK and I have the Hollywood Police Stations support who very carefully and kindly photographed the bruises on my arms which this guard is responsible for doing."

Official details weren't forthcoming, but she reportedly slapped the guard in question when he placed his hand on her arm in an attempt at steering her away from the venue. She was then placed under citizen's arrest and taken into custody.

The No Way Out star was booked on a misdemeanor battery charge and released on $20,000 bail at around 1:45 a.m.
