Hollywood star George Clooney arrested? Yes, it’s true! Actor and civil rights activist George Clooney was arrested outside the Sudanese embassy in Washington during a political protest against the government’s treatment of its people on Friday. George Clooney’s father, 78-year-old Nick Clooney, was arrested along with his son on misdemeanor charges of crossing a police line.
George Clooney, arrested and put in handcuffs with dozens of other protestors, spoke earlier in the day about the abhorrent conditions in Sudan. Speaking before a large crowd gathered at the Sudanese embassy in Washington, Clooney said “we need immediate humanitarian aid into Sudan before it becomes the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.”
