    Why couldn't her last name have been something like 'Topless'...

    It's a more interesting arrest of a celebrity than the usual drunk driving, bar fight, or cocaine bust story one generally gets.

    Pity she wasn't protesting "fracking" when she was arrested. :D

    Meh, celebrity activists getting arrested for taking a stand is just as much a cliche as those circumstances. It's just that we can make fun of celebrities who get drunk/use drugs so those stories get more attention.

    Now there's the controversy that she appeared in a Shell Oil commercial in the early 1990s.

    The media can't seem to understand that people can change their views since their they were a teenager.
