Rosario Dawson Arrested During Protest in Capitol Hill

The 'Daredevil' actress is detained by cops for crossing police line during a pro-democracy rally in Washington D.C.

AceShowbiz - Rosario Dawson was taken into police custody on Friday afternoon, April 15. The Claire Temple of "Daredevil" was arrested by cops along with many other people for crossing police line to stage a sit-in during the Democracy Spring rally in Washington D.C. She was fined for $50 after briefly detained.

The group criticized the corruption in the U.S. politics. They called for the overturn of "Citizens United" law that removes restriction about the campaign spending by outside organizations. The actress also showed support for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders during the Capitol Hill protest.

"I wanted personally to be in solidarity with the other folks who put themselves on the line and really just to bring attention to this because I think that's just vitally important," she told The Guardian.

"The police were really great with us, really lovely. I have to say that is not the case for so many people: Dreamers, Black Lives Matter activists, so many people are not seeing this kind of courageousness ... I hope that officers across the nation can take heed of that and recognise that the peaceful protests that are going around the nation should also be treated in the same way as we are being treated today."
