Noah Wyle ARRESTED Medicaid Protest

We bet his former co-star George Clooney has a few words of encouragement for him!

Noah Wyle, who starred with the actor on ER, was also arrested today during a political protest against Congress cutting Medicaid in Washington D.C.!

The actor was with 100 other members of the group ADAPT, a group attempting to protect the elderly and those with disabilities from being forced into nursing homes, instead of being able to afford home care!

Such a worthy cause!

Keep standing your ground, guys!
