You can't keep a good man down.

George Clooney was arrested Friday for participating in a staged protest outside the Sudanese embassy in Washington, D.C., organized to bring attention to that country's president, Omar al-Bashir, provoking a crisis with his blockade of humanitarian aide.

Regarding the situation, Clooney, 50, had said earlier in interviews that if steps were not taken in the next three to four months, "We're going to have a real humanitarian disaster." He also said he is impressed with President Barack Obama's personal engagement on the situation in Sudan. On Wednesday, the actor testified before Congress about the "campaign of murder" in Sudan.

As he was being taken away Friday morning, after authorities warned him three times to leave, Clooney said, "This is for the government in Khartoum to stop randomly killing its own innocent men, women and children. Stop ****** them and stop starving them. That's all we ask," reports USA Today.

Handcuffed and arrested along with him were his father, journalist Nick Clooney; U.S. Rep. Jim Moran (Dem.) of Virginia; NAACP President Ben Jealous, among others, reports the Associated Press. They were then placed in a Secret Service van.

Max Milien, spokesman for the Secret Service, told PEOPLE the actor was being cooperative. "He's being charged currently with disorderly crossing of a police line which is a misdemeanor and he will be transported to the second district of the Metropolitan Police Department for processing," Milien said.

A rep for the actor released a statement after the arrest, stating, "They were protesting the violence committed by the government of Sudan on its own innocent men, women and children. They were demanding they allow humanitarian aid into the country before it becomes the largest humanitarian crisis in the world."

The arrest was not unexpected, Earlier in the day, The Washington Post reported, "By standing on the embassy’s private property, they’re likely to get cuffed, arrested and charged."

Omar al-Bashir? Hey... that doesn't sound like an Englishman's name. Kirk told me that all of Africa's problems were caused by British exploitation.

"They were protesting the violence committed by the government of Sudan on its own innocent men, women and children. They were demanding they allow humanitarian aid into the country before it becomes the largest humanitarian crisis in the world."
The government of Sudan? That can't be possible. The only thing oppressing the Africans and keeping them down is the British... Kirk said so.

Hey, Kirk... you should give this Clooney fellow a call and straighten him out... he's got it all wrong.

Wow he looks so brave and stoic in the face of this travesty of justice. You just know he's jizzing his Lamborghini-liberal pants, knowing he's Fightin' the Power and Takin' it to the Man.

Somewhere in their subconscious these douches recognize the absurdity of the fame and riches they're afforded for play-acting in front of a greenscreen. So they seek out some melodramatic Meaningful Issue they can crusade for. And get arrested just like those protestors in Iran and Tiananmen Square, except they're released in 20 minutes and pay a fine equal to 0.00000001% of their net worth

It's the methods, not the cause. Anyone who purposely gets himself arrested is a douche.

If I was famous, I would go to a Sonic with signs saying, "Let's eat some Kony Dogs!" Great publicity for Sonic, laughs all- around, good cause, and cheap cherry limeades from 2-4.

So, people like this are against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but they want us to intervene in Sudan, against Kony, etc.

So, it's only interventionist when you disagree. Got it.

Who knew Sudan had a government?

NAACP President Ben Jealous
No, I haven't.

I bet they would give you free sundaes and stuff if the gimmick worked as well as I'm betting it would.,

Clooney is a racist, he's only attacking Omar al-Bashir because he is black.

I wonder how much he paid to have this all setup? Look at the hero Michael Clayton! I mean Danny Ocean! Get it? He doesn't change characters movie to movie.

It's definitely set up, he just says that he's going to the embassy with the intention of being arrested. Notify press, police and it is quick 1,2,3. It's just a show for the cameras. It's just a fine, no jail time or threat of.

I bring love and cheer.

I hate his dumb smirk and that he was hauled away in a secret service van. Throw him in real jail a couple hours and see if that smile goes away.

They should have done a cavity search on him. Just to be safe.

WOW! He is so courageous and strong. A true inspiration to us all, stand up in the face of danger and not back down. Now thats a mans man and we could learn a lot from him. Wonder if he called The Dog to bail him out?
