I remembered hearing about her arrest. Guess there was an interesting 'rest of the story.'

Here Dawson and her co-stars joined the real protests during the RNC, followed by cameramen who looked, of course, just like the real news cameramen. (Crooker in real life makes documentaries, so could shoot his character's own footage.) So effectively did this work that Dawson was actually arrested, handcuffed, and held in jail for nine hours before convincing the police she was an actress playing an activist.

On a side note, I am amazed at how many careers sprung from the depressing but brilliant film Kids. Chloe Sevigny, Rosario Dawson, Leo Fitzpatrick [Johnny on The Wire]. And saddened that two are already dead in their 20s, Justin Pierce, and Sajan Bhagat.
