PR Blast: Martin Sheen Gets Cited For Anti-Nuclear Protest

Martin Sheen “crossed the line” yesterday when he and 39 other protesters traveled onto a Nevada Nuclear Testing Site near Las Vegas. The group was rallying for nuclear disarmament and peace. Nevada sheriff’s deputies were quick to hand out citations for the trespassing and held the group; including Sheen, for an undisclosed amount of time. Reports say there were 75-150 people present for the protest.

Does anyone else find Sheen’s participation rather noble? I mean, sure, he’s a regular guy like you or me that just happens to be an actor — but to lend his fame and support to a rally that only draws only 150 people is pretty cool. I can think of few others who would participate based on the cause and less on the spotlight. I’m not saying Sheen should have broken the law during the protest; but to do so willingly anyways and know you’re going to be in the papers the next day takes guts. That, and some very good lawyers, a large bank account, and a history of past violations at the same site. How’s that for a publicity stunt?

Hit the jump for more.
