WINNSBORO, Tx — A Hollywood star was arrested today by Wood County authorities protesting the Keystone XL pipeline.
According to her publicist Paul Bassis, Daryl Hannah, 51, and an elderly woman were taken away in handcuffs and charged with civil disobedience.
Bassis tells KWKT, Hannah and a woman, Eleanor Fairchild, 78, were taken into custody at a property near the intersection of Hwy. 154 and FM 2869 after standing in front of an excavator and other construction equipment.
The landowner believes the pair of protesters has been taken to the Wood County Sheriff's Office.
A press conference is expected to be arranged sometime soon.
Bassis tells KWKT, Hannah has "always been sympathetic to Texas landowners who oppose the government taking their land for pipeline pathways."
Hannah's publicist claims Fox News' Sean Hannity will bail her out of jail, after a promise to do so the last time she was a guest on his show.
Bassis says he has been in contact with Hannity, and that they are expecting that he will follow through with his commitment.
She is best know for her roles in Splash, Blade Runner, Roxanne, Wall Street, Steel Magnolias and Kill Bill.
