Arrest Update 10/28

News
Authorities have updated to 141 the number of people arrested when law enforcement officers evicted protesters from private property in the path of the Dakota Access oil pipeline.
Donnell Hushka, a spokeswoman for the Morton County Sheriff’s Department, says most of the protesters were arrested for conspiracy to endanger by fire or explosion, engaging in a riot and maintaining a public nuisance.
The nearly six-hour operation to evict the protesters began at 11:15 a.m. Thursday.
Hushka says protesters started numerous fires during the course of the day, including setting three pieces of construction equipment on fire.
