Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello arrested

Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello was arrested during a protest for hotel worker rights last week in Los Angeles.

According to Morello's social activism Web site Axis of Justice, he was one of about 400 protesters arrested during a march last Thursday to raise awareness for immigrant hotel workers' rights.

He was charged with unlawful assembly for refusing to move from the main entry road into Los Angeles International Airport.

Morello, 42, spent the evening in lockup and was released Friday morning. 'Bail was high,' he said each arrestee had to pay $5,000. But, he added, 'spirits were higher. We had a rousing civil rights-era-like hootenanny on 'the inside.' '
