MADISON (WKOW) -- An Oscar-nominated actor has pleaded no contest to interrupting a University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents meeting last month.
James Cromwell, 73, was charged with disorderly conduct. Authorities say Cromwell and another activist, 27-year-old Jeremy Beckham, entered the Regents meeting last month to protest the use of cats in experiments at UW-Madison.
On Monday, Cromwell's attorney entered no contest pleas on both men's behalf. A court commissioner ordered each to pay $263 in forfeitures and costs.
Cromwell was nominated for an Academy Award for the 1995 film "Babe." His film credits also include "L.A. Confidential" and "The Green Mile."
