George Clooney Arrested In Washington D.C. (PHOTOS)
The 50-year-old activist was arrested during his protest in Washington D.C. today in front of the Sudanese Embassy. The actor’s rep Stan Rosenfield told Celebuzz:
“They were protesting the violence committed by the government of Sudan on its own innocent men, women and children. They were demanding they allow humanitarian aid into the country before it becomes the largest humanitarian crisis in the world.”
George wasn’t the only one arrested. The actor’s father Nick Clooney as well as a dozen others (congressmen included) were also cuffed. TODAY show reporter Ann Curry tweeted a statement from George, writing:
George Clooney:”It’s actually a humiliating thing to be arrested no matter what you do, but i’m glad to be standing here with my father.”
