(CNN) Actor George Clooney was arrested Friday during a protest in front of the Sudanese Embassy in Washington.
He was there to bring awareness to alleged war crimes in South Sudan.
The actor was cuffed along with other activists, including his father, Nick Clooney and Virginia Congressman Jim Moran.
Clooney met one-on-one with President Obama in the Oval Office Thursday to talk about his ongoing concerns over the humanitarian crisis in Sudan.
Protesters accuse Sudan's president of blocking food and aid from entering the country.
