Forget Kony, George Clooney just got arrested at the Sudanese Embassy

It’s been a tough year for George Clooney. First, his wife ended up in a coma. Then he found out she was cheating on him with Shaggy from Scooby-Doo…oh, wait. That was just a movie. Right. Anyway, George Clooney just got arrested in front of the Sudanese Embassy in Washington, DC.

While everybody else is concerned with that African warlord, and the brouhaha surrounding everybody’s concern, Clooney is still focused on the atrocities going down in Sudan. Remember Sudan? And Darfur? Well, Clooney is still on it. George, his awesome, anchorman dad and Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia (D-obvs) were arrested after they gave speeches about Sundanese President Omar al-Bashir and his government’s attacks on civilians in the Nuba Mountains. Apparently, they then stepped on the embassy lawn knowing full well such steps would get them arrested.

Yeah, it’s a celeb getting arrested on purpose. But, it’s the Cloonster. He says he is raising awareness of what’s going on in the Nuba Mountains because if the international community doesn’t act “we’re going to have a real humanitarian disaster.” George, and posse, are already on their way to the precienct, but check the Washington Post’s Reliable Sources twitter feed for breaking news.

Now, where is my Free Dr. Ross t-shirt?
