Report: Rosario Dawson Arrested at Political Rally

TMZ reports that Rosario Dawson was arrested Friday in Washington, D.C., while protesting at a Democracy Spring rally. Hundreds of nonviolent protesters have gathered in D.C. for a weeklong sit-in, frequently getting arrested, to rally against the American political system. Dawson, specifically, is said to have been protesting the corruption of big money in politics. There are currently no details on what Dawson was arrested for, but D.C. police tell TMZ that nearly 100 protestors were arrested on Friday for things like crowding and obstructing. She is seen in a video below, taken by a witness, being handcuffed and booked. She had spoken at the rally earlier on Friday, reportedly telling crowds "maybe we will all get arrested today." Welp, don't say Rosario never learned anything from Daredevil's vigilante spirit.
