Rumors hit the web that Lawless, who can next be seen in Starz's 'Spartacus: Vengeance,' had been arrested following a boot-throwing incident at the Occupy Oakland earlier this week. Twitter and Tumblr users quickly spread word that on Nov. 2 that Lawless had been apprehended after hurling a boot at a police officer. Those tweets and blog posts got shared, and thus an Internet rumor was born.
According to Lawless's representatives, the 'Xena: Warrior Princes' star has been in Los Angeles with her family, not throwing footwear on the streets of Oakland. And let's be honest, we all know she would've been throwing the Chakram, not a boot.
Somebody please tell Renee O'Connor she no longer has to mount a jailbreak.
