Houston's Al Green & Some Dude Named George Clooney Arrested In Sudan Protest

U.S. Rep Al Green of Houston got arrested today for protesting outside the Sudanese Embassy in D.C., but few people took note.

That's because among the other people arrested were George Clooney, who you might have heard of.

The orchestrated arrests were part of Clooney's campaign to raise interest in Sudan and the violent ugliness going on in that African nation.

Clooney (and Green, and three other Congressmen) were put in plastic handcuffs and rode the Black Maria to the jail. They had been warned three times to leave the embassy grounds.

As far as we can tell, media reports of the arrests aren't really giving Green equal time with Clooney for some reason, but at least the Congressman will have a story to tell about his cellmate.
