Actress Daryl Hannah Arrested at White House Pipeline Protest (Video)
Actress Daryl Hannah has been arrested during a sit-in in front of the White House protesting a pipeline expansion project that would greatly increase the amount of oil imported by the United States from Alberta oil sands in Canada.
U.S. Park Police handcuffed Hannah after she refused to move off of the sidewalk.
A police spokesperson said that Hannah paid a $100 fine and was released from custody.
If approved by the state department, the Keystone pipeline will funnel gas over 1,600 miles — from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.
Hannah is certainly no stranger to facing the fuzz for environmental causes. In 2009, she was arrested for an act of civil disobedience at a mountain removal post.
