The actress was never arrested citing that she chose not to do anything to get arrested for at the protest.
WASHINGTON – Actress and activist Piper Perabo showed up to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing in September with two pocketfuls of bail money – and a plan to get arrested that day.
Perabo, speaking at Politico’s “Women Rule” conference in Washington, D.C., divulged new details about her brush with the law, telling the crowd she had actually attended a training on “how to get arrested” a year before.
A woman from the immigration movement had reached out to the “Covert Affairs” actress on the heels of President Trump’s September 2017 announcement that he planned to do way with DACA, President Obama’s executive order that granted legal status to so-called undocumented “Dreamers.”
“Do you want to get arrested tomorrow?” the activist had asked. “I said, ‘I don’t know, I don’t know if I do.’ And she said there’s going to be a training on how to get arrested tonight- do you want to go to that? And I said, ‘Yeah I want to go to that,’” Perabo recalled.
