Actor Cromwell arrested at Wis. regents meeting
MADISON, Wis. - Actor James Cromwell has been arrested for allegedly disrupting a University of Wisconsin Board of Regents meeting where he was protesting animal testing.
University police Sgt. Brent Gruber says the 73-year-old Cromwell was arrested and ticketed on a misdemeanour charge of disorderly conduct. Cromwell and an activist from an animal-rights group also arrested were released from jail by Thursday afternoon.
They held two large signs showing a cat with metal implanted in its head at a UW-Madison lab, while shouting about the treatment of cats Thursday morning. The director of the school's Research Animal Resources Center says federal agriculture officials have found their claims to be false.
Cromwell was nominated for an Academy Award for the 1995 film "Babe." Other credits include "L.A. Confidential," ''The Green Mile" and "The Artist."
