George Clooney Arrested In Washington D.C. (Video)

George Clooney was arrested this morning at the Sudanese Embassy in Washington D.C.  He was taken away in zip ties by Secret Service, along with 16 others, including Martin Luther King III, George's father Nick, Ben Jealous, the President of the NAACP, and two sitting Democratic senators.

They were protesting the Sudanese government's refusal to let humanitarian agencies into Sudan to assist their starving citizens.  They were also protesting leader Omar Al-Bashir's continual bombing of innocent men, women, and children.

Clooney posted a meager $100 bail.  He's not expected to go to trial for today's arrest.

It's a sad situation, when it takes the arrest of a Oscar winner to bring the nation's attention to the atrocities taking place outside of the country.
