Actress and comedian Amy Schumer has been detained at a protest of the Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

MSNBC tweeted images of dozens of protestors at the Hart Senate Office Building atrium on Capitol Hill being detained and escorted out of the building. Schumer appears to be one of them, and several images and videos show her being detained by police have made their way onto Twitter. One video features a police offer saying, "You want to get arrested? Exit. Now."

Before the arrest, Schumer filmed a video for a fan whose mother was at the protest, saying, "Hi Zola, I'm here with your mom. She loves you very much. I think we're going to get arrested, and we're so proud of you."

Schumer is the latest in a line of celebrities who've made appearances in Washington, D.C., to speak out against the Kavanaugh hearings. Piper Perabo (Notorious, Covert Affairs) was arrested last month when the hearings began, and Alyssa Milano attended the hearings and has spoken out on several occasions against Kavanaugh.
