Jane Fonda arrested for fifth time

Washington DC, Dec 21 (PTI) Jane Fonda was arrested by the police for the fifth time for climate change protest here.

The Hollywood veteran recently started 'Fire Drill Friday' initiative which involves weekly protests for climate change in Washington, DC.

On Friday, Fonda was taken into custody along with 137 other demonstrators inside the Hart Senate Office Building, reported The Washington Post.
