Details on George Clooney Arrest in Washington D.C.


Airdate: 03/16/2012

George Clooney was loaded in handcuffs into a paddy wagon. He was busted along with his father on Friday outside the Sudanese Embassy in Washington D.C.

Clooney told the press at the site of the arrest, "Immediately we need humanitarian aid to be allowed into the Sudan. The second thing we are here to ask...it's a very simple thing, is for the government in Khartoum to stop randomly killing its own innocent men, women and children," said Clooney.

Clooney and his supporters, who were calling attention to human rights abuses, were busted after blocking the entrance to the embassy. He was placed in cuffs and taken away in a Secret Service van.

His arrest capped a jammed week in the nation's capitol. Clooney testified before Congress and attended the star-studded state dinner for British Prime Minister David Cameron. Clooney was seated next to the First Lady's table.

Clooney is charged with "disorderly crossing of a police line" which is a misdemeanor.
