Actress Lucy Lawless, best known as the star of the television series "Xena: Warrior Princess," was arrested in New Zealand while taking part in a Greenpeace protest, reports New York Magazine.

Lawless and other activists were reportedly arrested after boarding an oil rig set to go on an Arctic oil drilling expedition. The protesters, including Lawless, reportedly scaled a 174-foot drilling tower during their four-day occupation of the vessel, with Lawless live-tweeting about the protest over the weekend.

The protest apparently came to an end Monday with the arrest by New Zealand authorities of Lawless and the other protesters.

Lawless is a native New Zealander, the story notes.
