Arrested development

March 24, 2012

On March 16, Hollywood actor George Clooney was behind bars, in real life. Why? Well, apparently he ‘crossed a police line at a political protest in Washington DC’.

The incident happened outside the Sudanese embassy. The actor was handcuffed and pushed into a cell. He was released after paying $100 in bail. Replying to a journalist’s question as to how his stay in jail went, George C said it was really rough. “Have you ever been in a cell with these guys?”

Ironically, ‘these guys’ included his father and a member of the US Congress. Talk about celebrity-style arrest.
