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 the 75-year-old actor, whose work includes Babe, American Horror Story and L.A. Confidential, was arrested on 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.
Protesters have said they believe toxins from the plant may cause health issues and lower property value in the area.
Cromwell was nominated for an Academy Award for best supporting actor for 1995’s Babe.
