George Clooney Arrested in Washington, D.C.
UPDATE: As of late Friday afternoon, George was released on bail.
George Clooney was arrested on Friday (March 16) in Washington, D.C.
The 50-year-old actor took part in a demonstration outside the Embassy of Sudan and was placed in plastic cuffs.
“Before their arrest, the assembled group of congressmen, religious leaders and cultural icons spoke about the humanitarian crisis faced by hundreds of thousands of Sudanese who have been prevented from receiving international aid by president Bashir,” the Washington Post writes.
“Clooney and the group of protesters stepped onto embassy grounds after giving short speeches, at which point they were instructed that they must leave or be arrested. On the third warning, officers told the group they were under arrest, and the protestors lined up to get handcuffed and were removed to a waiting van,” the Post added.
