Woodley Livestreams Pipeline Protest Arrest

October 11, 2016

BISMARCK, N.D. — Shailene Woodley’s arrest at a protest in North Dakota has been livestreamed to fans on Facebook.

The Divergent actress was livestreaming her protest Oct. 10 of the four-state Dakota Access pipeline for a total of more than two-and-a-half hours before her arrest by local authorities.

Toward the end of a two hour video, Woodley is told by a law enforcement officer that she is being arrested for criminal trespassing. The video showing what appeared to be a peaceful protest has been viewed more than three million times.

Morton County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Rob Keller says Woodley was one of 27 protesters arrested Oct. 10. She was also charged with engaging in a riot.

Woodley has been an outspoken opponent of the $3.8 billion project.
