Los Angeles - Sean Young has been released from custody after she was arrested at the official post-Oscars party on Sunday night.

Didn't have a ticket

Sean was taken into custody by Los Angeles police officer soon after the alleged incident at the post-Oscars party thrown by the Academy at the Hollywood Renaissance hotel.

Earlier in the evening, the Ace Ventura: Pet Detective star was spotted taking pictures with Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock.

Sean told TMZ.com she was waiting to enter the ball with friends when an Oscars official advised security to make a citizen's arrest.
