WASHINGTON, Aug. 30 (UPI) -- Actress Daryl Hannah acknowledged she was arrested during an oil pipeline protest Tuesday in Washington, D.C.
TMZ reported the actress and several other protesters were handcuffed by police after they refused to move off the sidewalk in front of the White House.
"Sometimes it's necessary to sacrifice your freedom for a greater freedom. And we want to be free from the horrible death and destruction that fossil fuels cause, and have a clean energy future," Hannah told the celebrity news Web site.
Hannah was previously arrested in West Virginia in 2009 during a protest against mining practices.
Hannah, 50, is best known for her work in the films "Splash," "Wall Street," "Steel Magnolias" and "Kill Bill."
