Jane Fonda was taken into police custody Friday in Washington, DC, while participating in a climate crisis demonstration.
The incident comes as the actress and activist launched her “Fire Drill Fridays” campaign, a civil disobedience effort to raise awareness of environmental challenges.
“The United States Capitol Police arrested 16 individuals for unlawfully demonstrating on the East Front of the U.S. Capitol,” Eva Malecki, spokeswoman for the Capitol police told CNN.
All were charged with “crowding, obstructing or incommoding,” she said.
While Malecki did not confirm Fonda was among those arrested, Fonda’s campaign shared an image of her being taken into custody.
Additional witnesses shared video on social media.
CNN has contacted Fonda’s representatives for comment.
