Daryl Hannah arrested over oil protest

Friday October 5, 2012

Actress Daryl Hannah has been arrested whilst protesting against the construction of a pipline designed to transport crude oil from Canada to Gulf Coast refineries.

The Splash star was detained on Thursday night after she and landowner Eleanor Fairchild stood in front of the heavy machinery that was trying gain access to Daryl's friend's property in order to build the pipeline.

The pair were taken to Wood County Jail in Texas.

A keen environmental campaigner, the Kill Bill star was also arrested in August 2011 for protesting against the Keystone XL pipeline in Washington.
