Shailene Woodley Arrested at Protest Over Dakota Access Pipeline

Shailene Woodley was arrested on Monday for criminal trespassing after protesting the construction of an oil pipeline that is to run through North and South Dakota,  the Morton County Sheriff’s Office confirmed with ET.

On Sunday, a federal court rejected the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s request to halt construction on the project, which the tribe claims would destroy some of their sacred sites and contaminate ground water. The 24-year-old actress, along with other protestors, joined the tribe to take a stand against the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline that will span 1,100 miles across the Dakotas and into the Missouri River.
