Actress Shailene Woodley was arrested Monday at the Standing Rock Indian reservation in North Dakota during a Facebook Live broadcast. She was protesting the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline as part of the #NoDAPL movement.
“Riot police are arriving at this peaceful protest where people are praying,” the 24-year-old said upon arriving. “They have frickin’ batons.”
Two hours later, Woodley said that authorities grabbed her by the jacket and detained her. In the video, law enforcement can be heard telling the Divergent actress that she’s being arrested for criminal trespassing. Woodley is then escorted toward a police vehicle.
“I’m being arrested,” Woodley says. “It’s because I’m well known. I have 40,000 people watching… I hope you’re watching mainstream media.”

“We stand together to protect Mother Earth,” Woodley said in another broadcast, on the way to the protest this morning. “That’s all we’re here for.”
A federal court on Sunday rejected a request by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to halt work on the Dakota Access Pipeline. The tribe says the project will destroy sacred grounds, according to NBC News.
But the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit struck down the request. The $3.7 billion pipeline—slated to move almost half a million barrels of oil daily—is poised to move forward. Its 1,170-mile stretch would come less than a mile from the tribe’s reservation.
Update 1:57pm CT, Oct. 11: Woodley was released from jail Monday evening. In a statement, Woodley’s rep told People that she “appreciates the outpouring of support, not only for her, but more importantly, for the continued fight against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.”
