James Cromwell has been arrested again.

The Babe actor was arrested and sentenced to jail last month after he was found guilty for obstructing traffic during a protest against a gas-fired power plant being built in Wawayanda.

Last week, after a failed appeal, he spent seven days in jail.

And now it has emerged that the 77-year-old was arrested on Monday for his involvement in a protest at SeaWorld San Diego’s Orca Encounter.

James attended an Ocra show, holding a megaphone and wearing a t-shirt that read 'SeaWorld Sucks'.

In a video released by PETA, James can be seen protesting in the crowd. Several minute later, police rush in and can be seen arresting him along with a number of other protestors.

Speaking about the controversy, James said in a statement from PETA: "Orcas deserve a full life in the ocean, not a life sentence of swimming endless circles until they drop dead from disease.

"My friends at PETA and I want SeaWorld to move these intelligent animals to seaside sanctuaries without delay."


James Cromwell, the actor famous for playing Farmer Hoggett in the movie Babe, has been sentenced to seven days in prison.

The actor was sentenced to serve time at Orange County Jail, after refusing to pay a $375 (€330) fine related to his arrest at a protest in Wawayanda, New York.

The 77-year-old was one of six protestors found guilty of obstructing traffic when they staged an environmental protest, which included a sit-in on the site of a natural gas-fired power plant.

According to People, James was protesting against the carbon emissions that would be emitted by the power plant.

He believes they would have a drastic effect on the local environment, and accelerate climate change.

The LA Confidential star told Variety: “If we don’t stay together, nothing will change. Power to the people.”

James' defence lawyer asked for an appeal in the sentence, which the judge granted.

Mr Cromwell now has until July 14 to pay the fine.

(P.S. Does anybody else love the way he has a pig emoji included in his Twitter name?)
