When you get into law enforcement, you probably never imagine you’ll end up putting Sally Field in zip-tie handcuffs. Then again, you also probably don’t imagine you’ll spend every Friday arresting climate-change protesters, but Jane Fonda started up her standing weekly protest in Washington, D.C., and it sure doesn’t look like she’s ready to stop any time soon. Earlier today, Sally Field joined the ranks of previous attendees Sam Waterston and Ted Danson by being arrested at Fonda’s Fire Drill Fridays (along with 25 other people) and led away from the Capitol by police. Field’s publicist, Heidi Schaeffer, confirmed the actress’ arrest, according to CNN.

“I am a mother. I am a grandmother. The time is now,” the actress told Fire Drill Friday protesters prior to her arrest. “We cannot sit back in our comfort zones, on our couches, and wonder, ‘What can we do?’ We can get out. We can do something, in the rain. Whatever it takes.”
