Lucy Lawless Was NOT Arrested at Occupy Oakland

Lucy LawlessFear not loyal Xenites, Lucy Lawless was not arrested at the Occupy Oakland demonstrations.

Rumors hit the web that Lawless, who can next be seen in Starz's 'Spartacus: Vengeance,' had been arrested following a boot-throwing incident at the Occupy Oakland earlier this week. Twitter and Tumblr users quickly spread word that on Nov. 2 that Lawless had been apprehended after hurling a boot at a police officer. Those tweets and blog posts got shared, and thus an Internet rumor was born.

According to Lawless's representatives, the 'Xena: Warrior Princes' star has been in Los Angeles with her family, not throwing footwear on the streets of Oakland. And let's be honest, we all know she would've been throwing the Chakram, not a boot.

Somebody please tell Renee O'Connor she no longer has to mount a jailbreak.

'Spartacus: Vengeance' returns Fri., Jan. 27 at 10PM ET on Starz

I knew it's a joke.

oh yes... and... I agree. she would have thrown something that made much more sense... such as a chakram.

I would be pleased to see another public figure throw themselves in on the right side. This seems to be becoming a world wide movement... which it should be. We may not need a guillotine... but we do need to strip them of their power. It's only a boy's club after all.

Some people age better than others, and her face certainly suggests character. I don't know if she was there or not, but in my heart I hope she is the kind of person that would be there.

Chicago '68, Kent State '70, Occupy protests today. Attitudes the same. Even some faces are the same. Hopefully, today's police will disregard political correctness and start doing what really needs to be done, particularly in Oakland. Remember officers, you don't get paid to make your wives widows and your kids to grow up without daddies.

Just like the national media. Print RUMOR over FACT since the factsare so boring.

I never watched Xena, but she was spectacular in Spartacus.

How could she be with you when she was with me! Anyways, I give respect for actors and actresses who are not afraid to get arrested for what they believe in. Too many famous people only talk when the cameras are in front but hide in front of the TV when it's time to act. Charlton Heston marched side by side with Martin Luther King and risked being blacklisted by Hollywood for standing up to civil rights.
