Actress was demonstrating against the construction of a pipeline and has been released after paying a $100 fine
Daryl Hannah was arrested by U.S. Park Police Tuesday at a protest in front of the White House, a police spokesman told TheWrap.
Hannah was participating in a sit-in against the construction of a pipeline that would stretch from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.
The actress was handcuffed by police after she refused to move.
She paid an $100 fine and was released from custody, a police spokesperson told TheWrap.
Hannah, who starred in such classic '80s films as “Roxanne” and “Wall Street,” has been active in environmental causes for years.
She was previously arrested in 2006 for protesting efforts to bulldoze the country’s largest urban farm in Los Angeles and in 2009 for protesting mountaintop removal in West Virginia.
She has long been an advocate for curbing use of fossil fuels.
