Was Rosario Dawson Arrested?
Yes she was. But you've gotta hear the whole story, though. She wasn't arrested for burglary or kicking someone's ass. Dawson was actually arrested at protest because she crossed a police line to engage in a sit-in.
It was for the Democracy Spring protest in Washington D.C. last month. According to Latina, she was issued a $50 citation for crowding, obstructing or incommoding after crossing police lines. She was demonstrating against the role of big money in politics and restrictive voter identification laws.
Since the jails were full, they just gave people tickets. "I wanted to personally be in solidarity with other folks who put themselves on the line and really bring attention to this because I think that's just vitally important," Rosario said.
