The actress was in Wood County protesting the TransCanada pipeline project. The owner of the land, a 78 year old great grandmother, was protesting along with Hannah and others.
When they refused to leave and even laid down in front of the earth moving equipment, Wood County officers took them in to custody.
So here we have a picture of Daryl Hannah in front of the familiar Wood County cinder block background. The great grandmother was also arrested.
We all know that such protests are done in an effort to bring attention to an issue, and in the end, they amount to little more than some extra paperwork for the officers involved and some extra money for the county.
KLTV in Tyler reports:
The landowner, Eleanor Fairchild, is also arrested, charged with criminal trespass and obstructing a passageway.
I understand the obstruction charge. But can someone really be charged with criminal trespass on their own land?
