Brigitte Bardot - Brigitte Bardot Offers To Swap Places With Imprisoned Animal Rights Activist

French film icon-turned-animal rights activist Brigitte Bardot has offered to switch places with a marine conservation group leader, who has been arrested and imprisoned in Germany.
Canadian Paul Watson, the founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and a former Greenpeace campaigner, is accused of endangering the crew onboard a shark-finning ship after confronting them in the waters of Costa Rica in 2002.
He was arrested on an international warrant in Frankfurt, Germany on Sunday (13May12), and on Monday (14May12), German officials remanded him in custody.
Bardot, 77, is appalled by the news and insists she is willing to trade places with Watson, who has been battling hunters on the high seas for years.
A statement issued by the actress reads: "Being outraged by the fact that he's been put in prison, I offer to take his place because I am his accomplice.
"I have always supported Paul Watson, my brother in arms."
