Washington, April 18 (IANS) Actress Rosario Dawson was arrested for “crowding, obstructing, or incommoding” after she crossed police lines during a democracy spring protest.
The “Daredevil” actress was apprehended here and fined $50 after being processed on site even after warning, reports usmagazine.com.
The 36-year-old, who was later released, shared in a YouTube clipping that she and other protestors were warned “multiple times” that they will be arrested if they continu to demonstrate where they were but she thinks officers were reluctant to apprehend her as they didn’t want to draw attention.
“I think there was maybe a desire to not particularly maybe have me arrested because they didn’t want that to be put out there. So we got up when they walked away and we sat down and we were arrested,” she said.
Dawson has no complaints about how police conducted themselves.
“The police were really great with us and really lovely. I have to say that is not the case for so many people,” she added.
The “Sin City” star joined over 400 people in challenging corruption in politics.
The actress was earlier arrested at a rally protesting against former President George W. Bush in 2004.
