Daryl Hannah is once more being asked to come to West Virginia, but this time she’ll be in the court room instead of demonstrating against mountaintop removal. The actress was arrested last month during a coal mining protest for “obstructing and impeding traffic in front of a Massey Energy mine in Raleigh County.” She has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
According to a Raleigh County magistrate clerk, Hannah could lose her driver’s license if she fails to show up for the hearing. This should be interesting. If anything, hopefully the media will latch on to her once more being in town and she can continue spreading the word on destructive mountaintop removal.
The hearing date has yet to be set, but we’ll keep you updated as more develops.
