  • Description

    Film star Jane Fonda, a leading civil rights activist in the United States, was arrested yesterday ( Tuesday ) on drug and assault charges after flying into Cleveland, Ohio, from Canada. Released after spending 10 hours in jail, Miss Fonda denied the charges levelled against her.

    She was first arrested after the customs had found 105 vials of drugs in her baggage. They were later identified as drugs used for dieting and as tranquilliser. Miss Fonda was also charged with assault after a scuffle with a custom officer.

    Released on a personal bond of 5,000 dollars ( over 2,000 sterling), she was at once re-arrested and accused of assaulting a police officer. Miss Fonda said she had pushed a policeman, but she denied outright the drugs charges.
