By Sanya Burgess, news reporter
Comedian Amy Schumer has been detained during a protest against Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination.
Footage showed Schumer being lined up by police along with a number of other demonstrators in Washington who shouted and waved signs inside the atrium of the Hart Senate Office building on Thursday.A video shared on social media shows the Hollywood star being herded into a group of other protesting women by a policeman who asks her: "Do you want to be arrested?"She replies: "Yes."A second video, apparently filmed by Schumer herself and sent to a woman who posted it online, sees the comedian say: "Hi Zola, I'm here with your mom.
Here is @amyschumer telling cops she *wants* to be arrested.
Cop asks “Do you want to be arrested?”
Schumer: “Yes.”
Save this for the “I can’t believe I was arrested for free speech!” Tweet from her soon. pic.twitter.com/TLGaDAyh1T— Benny (@bennyjohnson) October 4, 2018
