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.

Meanwhile, Swift announced her Valentine's Day plans (flying solo or with "girlfriends") and is celebrating her latest single/video and ACM Awards nominations:

Swift and Kennedy called it quits in the fall after a brief romance that brought the "22" star to Cape Cod and Boston during the summer.
