Russell Means arrested for missing court date
Monday, October 25, 2004

Activist/actor Russell Means says there is "no excuse" for failing to appear in federal court on some misdemeanor traffic charges.

Means says he missed the date because he is "just campaigning too hard" for the presidency of the Oglala Sioux Tribe. Federal marshals arrested him on Saturday, right before a campaign appearance on the Pine Ridge Reservation.

Means offered to pay a $510 bond with a check or credit card but the marshals would not accept it, he said. So some Lakotas who were at the campaign stop gave him the money, which had to be converted to a money order. In the meantime, Means spent some time in jail.

Means is running against Cecilia Fire Thunder, who is seeking to be the tribe's first female president. The election is November 2.
