WAWAYANDA, N.Y. (AP) — Actor James Cromwell was among six people arrested at an upstate New York power plant that is under construction.
The Times Herald-Record of Middletown reports (http://bit.ly/1NujHID ) the 75-year-old actor whose work includes “Babe,” ”American Horror Story” and “L.A. Confidential” was arrested Friday after leading a chant among a group of protesters.
New York State Police say the six protesters who were arrested blocked an entrance to the construction site at the Competitive Power Ventures power plant in Orange County. They were arrested on disorderly conduct charges and ordered to appear in court in January.
