George Clooney Bails Out for Cheap

George Clooney
just bailed out of jail after being arrested for crossing a police line this morning in Washington D.C.

His bond -- about as cheap as it gets -- $100. 

Clooney and others were protesting in front of the Sudanese Embassy, voicing dismay over the killing of innocent men, women, and children. Clooney was arrested by U.S. Secret Service after he refused to move away from the protected area around the Embassy.

In all ... 15 men were arrested, including George's dad Nick as well as a congressman, and 2 women.

Moments after he was released, George was asked about his ultra-short stint behind bars -- and he joked, "Really rough you can imagine ... Have you ever been in a cell with these guys?"
