Taylor Swift's ex-beau, Connor Kennedy, was arrested on Tuesday with his father Robert Kennedy Jr. and green activist-actress, Daryl Hannah while participating in a protest against the Keystone XL pipeline project.
According to the New York Times, the three were among four dozen protesters "who zip-tied themselves to the White House fence and defied police orders to leave... [they were]
charged with failure to disperse and obey lawful orders, and released on $100 bond each."
Kennedy and his fellow Sierra Club protesters took action to encourage President Obama to veto to the Keystone XL oil pipeline project that would result in a "1,700-mile pipeline, which would carry heavy crude from oil sands formations in Alberta to refineries on the Gulf Coast," the Times report says.
So grateful for the 5 Academy of Country Music Awards nominations I got today. And happy that it's the 13th. And thankful for you.— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) February 14, 2013
