James Cromwell, the actor most known for his work in "Babe" and "American Horror Story," was arrested Friday at a protest

Cromwell and at least six others were blocking crews from entering the construction site of a new power plant. The 75-year-old was reportedly wearing a metal harness around his neck when he was arrested on disorderly conduct charges.

The protesters are reportedly concerned alleged toxins from the power plant could harm the surrounding environment.
