Conor Kennedy, best know for dating Taylor Swift, was arrested on Feb. 13, along with 47 others, for civil disobedience.
Kennedy, 18, had been protesting outside the White House against the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
Arrested alongside him was his father, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., actress Daryl Hannah, and Sierra Club executive director Michael Brune.
The protesters had blocked a main thoroughfare in front of the White House, and refused to move when asked by police. Both Kennedys were taken in handcuffs to a Park Police station, but were released after paying a fine.
The Keystone XL pipeline that they were protesting would bring oil from Canada’s tar sands to the Gulf Coast of the U.S. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have said that this would raise U.S. carbon pollution emissions by up to 27.6 million metric tons.
