Daryl Hannah Arrested for Farm Protest

Actress Daryl Hannah has been arrested while protesting the closure of a Los Angeles community garden. The Splash star, a fervent environmentalist, was charged with trespassing after climbing a tree on the 14-acre garden and refusing to come down as officials attempted to clear the site of activists.

Police staged a dawn raid yesterday in an effort to catch protestors like Hannah and singer Joan Baez unaware, and firefighters then used a cherry-picking crane to bring Hannah, farmers and activists down from their perch in a walnut tree.
