MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Dives For George Clooney Interview (VIDEO)

MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell went the distance to get the scoop as George Clooney was being arrested on Friday morning.

Clooney and other Darfur activists were led away in handcuffs outside the Sudanese embassy after protesting human rights violations in Sudan. The movie star was in D.C. to speak out about the crisis in the country and testify before Congress. CNN caught live footage of his arrest on Friday morning.

The video captured someone who appears to be Mitchell surrounded by a chaotic throng of journalists and police, directing questions to Clooney. He spoke to her for a few seconds, and she pressed on even as he began to walk away. The scene begins at 2:34 (via Talking Points Memo).
