 More arrests today in connection to the Dakota Access Pipeline protests.
The North Dakota Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officers responded to two separate incidents of protesters assembling on Dakota Access Pipeline construction sites.  The sites are located on private property west of St. Anthony in Morton County.
The calls for assistance were originally placed around noon by law enforcement observing protesters blocking Highway 6 with their vehicles and stopping traffic. 
Officers arrested five protesters for disorderly conduct and obstructing the highway as a result of this incident.
After today’s arrests, there have been 74 arrested for protest activities since the start of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests.
A press release from Morton County says over 50 officers arrived on scene and found over 100 cars and 300 protesters in the construction area along the road. There were also around a dozen horses.
The release says the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation is following up on reports of one DAPL worker assaulted.
