>Actress Piper Perabo said she was arrested while protesting Supreme Court judge nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing and posted a video showing her being escorted out of the room by police.
>Perabo took to Twitter Tuesday, where she is very politically active and even has a cover image criticizing Kavanaugh, to share the video of a woman interrupting the proceedings to call for senators to vote “no” on confirming the Trump-selected judge.
>As they were both escorted out of the room by police, another woman stood up to voice her protest.
>The post accompanied a video in which Perabo and other can be heard shouting and holding up signs imploring senators to “be a hero” and “please vote ‘no’” on Kavanaugh’s nomination.
>Another angle, shared by activist Linda Sarsour, who was the first to speak up, shows the moment in question from a different angle. In it, it's clear that Perabo is yanked from the room by police before she gets a real chance to speak.
>Sasour entered the hearing room in the Hart Senate Office Building just before 9:30 a.m. EDT. She sat quietly with other anti-Kavanaugh activists until the hearing opened, at which point she loudly rebuked Republican lawmakers and urged them to adjourn. She continued to shout at senators as she was dragged from the room by multiple police officers. Several other activists brandishing signs immediately followed suit and were removed.
>It’s unclear at this time if Perabo was charged for any crime or was taken into custody.
>Perabo joined the slew of people who protested the hearings Tuesday. A combination of interruptions from the crowd as well as Democrats calling for the hearing to be adjourned resulted in more than an hour's delay in the schedule.
>The disruptions continued as lawmakers attempted to make opening statements. There were roughly 63 interruptions before the day’s lunch break.
