George Clooney Arrested Outside Sudanese Embassy in D.C.
Free George Clooney! According to new reports, the handsome actor was arrested today while protesting outside the Sudanese embassy.
According to MSNBC, George was arrested Friday morning and taken away in handcuffs in Washington, D.C., outside the Sudanese embassy.
George and several of his activists colleagues were protesting the country's blockage of food and aid as well as the treatment of its people and were arrested after receiving three verbal warnings.
George and his father, Nick Clooney, 78, were arrested along with with Martin Luther King III, NAACP President Ben Jealous, Rep Jim McGovern, Rep. Jim Moran and former Rep. Tom Andrews.
As it is private property, they could have been arrested for trespassing charges but that remains unknown. The group held a sign that said, "Sudan stop the weapons of mass starvation."
George's arrest certainly drew attention to his cause. He said they were there to ask the government "to stop randomly killing its own innocent men, women and children. Stop raping them and stop starving them."
