BP Protests: Tony Hayward Congressional Testimony Interrupted In Protest (PHOTOS/VIDEO)
share this story
Gulf commercial shrimper Diane Wilson was arrested for interrupting BP CEO Tony Hayward's testimony on Capitol Hill. Hayward barely started his opening statement when Wilson, painted to look like she had oil on her, shouted, ""You need to be charged with a crime!"
Wilson was joined by other members of Code Pink, a protest group that she co-founded. The group also held a demonstration the day prior in front of the White House, where Hayward was meeting with President Obama.
Wilson was arrested last week when she interrupted another congressional hearing on the Gulf oil spill by pouring syrup on herself.
Photos and video of the protests from today and yesterday are below.
