WASHINGTON — Actress Daryl Hannah has been arrested in front of the White House along with other environmental protesters who oppose a planned oil pipeline from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast.

The sit-in Tuesday involved dozens protesting the Keystone XL pipeline. It would go through Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas to refineries in Houston and Port Arthur, Texas.

Before she was arrested, Hannah told The Associated Press the protesters want to be free from dependence on fossil fuels. The group calls for clean energy investments instead. Hannah said they hope President Barack Obama will not bow to oil lobbyists.

Hannah sat down on the sidewalk near the White House and refused orders from U.S. Park Police to move.

She has been arrested in the past for environmental causes.

Ex-vice president tells his version of history in memoir

WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Dick Cheney said he offered to resign three times in 2004.

That, and many other revelations about the 46th vice president of the United States, are detailed in Cheney’s book, “In My Time,” a tell-all memoir that hit stores Tuesday.

“If President Bush felt he had a better chance to win with someone else as his running mate, I wanted to make sure he felt free to make the change,” Cheney wrote.

In a taped interview that aired Monday night on NBC’s “Dateline,” Cheney described the book as his “one chance to write your version of events, your history, your story.” He said he did not set out to embarrass former President George W. Bush, though reviews suggest Cheney contradicts Bush’s view of crucial events.

Britney Spears’ medical records off-limits

LOS ANGELES — A judge won’t give a company suing Britney Spears access to her medical information.

The pop star is still under court-ordered conservatorship after a bout of erratic behavior in 2008. Her father and attorneys control her personal and financial affairs.

The company Brand Sense claims it helped negotiate a perfume deal for Spears but was cut out of the profits.

Brand Sense wanted to see medical records proving Spears couldn’t testify. But Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Reva Goetz ruled Tuesday that Brand Sense Partners has no standing to see medical records.
