Actor James Cromwell Arrested at UW Regents Meeting


Posted Thursday, February 7, 2013 --- 3:03 p.m.
Actor James Cromwell was arrested at a UW Board of Regents meeting, according to a press release from PETA.
According to the animal rights organization, Cromwell entered the meeting to challenge regents over experiments on cats.
The release says campus police arrested Cromwell after he showed a picture of a cat with a large metal post protruding from its head. PETA says an organization staff member was also arrested.
Cromwell is a longtime PETA supporter. PETA has called on UW-Madison to end experiments on cats. The organization says they have received no response.
Cromwell is known for his roles in "American Horror Story", "LA Confidential" and for the role as Farmer Hoggett in "Babe."

Good for him. Was he charged with "showing photos of cats with rods in their heads?" Odd the way the sentence is phrased, he was arrested after showing the photo.

BTW, love the avatar, Hambone!

Defense attorney staggers into court, completely sloshed.

"Your honor, my client wouldn't even talk to me unless I had a drink with him. It took three shots of something called 'tequila' just to get him to enter a plea!"
"Counselor, are you drunk?"
"Your honor, I was just trying to help him blend in."
"Oh, you're blended, all right."
