Shailene Woodley arrested while peacefully protesting Dakota Access pipeline in North Dakota

When informed she’s being placed under arrest, Woodley questions why she’s being arrested and not other protesters. “Is it because I’m famous? Is it because people know who I am?”

The response from an off-screen officer is that she was trespassing, to which she responds, “So did hundreds of people, we all did.”

At that point, two of the three officers tasked with arresting Woodley stated, “You were identified.” (2:00:46)

As she was taken away by officers, Woodley turned back to her mother, who was still filming and said, “I hope you’re watching, mainstream media.” (2:01:40)

Woodley was then transferred to Morton County Jail in Mandan, 16 miles north of the protest site. /SOURCE
