Jane Fonda, Ted Danson Arrested in Climate Change Protest
“Today, the United States Capitol Police arrested 32 individuals for unlawfully demonstrating in the intersection of East Capitol and First Streets,” Capitol Police communications director Eva Malecki said in a statement to Variety. She added that all the individuals were charged with crowding, obstructing or incommoding.
A video posted by Washington Post’s Hannah Jewell showed Danson being detained by police outside of the Capitol Building with his hands restrained on Friday morning. When asked if he has ever been arrested before, “The Good Place” star replied that he hasn’t.
The Twitter account for Fonda’s climate change campaign, Fire Drill Fridays, also tweeted a video of Fonda being arrested for the third time in three weeks.
