Shailene Woodley Films Arrest on Facebook Live - Watch Video

Shailene Woodley was arrested on Monday morning while protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline and she filmed the full arrest on Facebook Live.

The 24-year-old actress was arrested for criminal trespassing and she filmed the full two hour protest, which ended in her being arrested while trying to get into her car.

“I don’t know if you guys just heard me, but I was walking back to my RV, which is right there, so that we can go back to camp peacefully and they grabbed me by my jacket and they said that I was not allowed to continue, and they had giant guns and batons and zip ties and they’re not letting me go,” Shailene says near the end of the video. She was told she is the only one being arrested as she was the only one “identified.”

“Alright, I’m being arrested… because I was trespassing like everyone. But as soon as you guys asked me to leave, I left. She was down there, everybody was down there,” Shailene continued. “I’m being arrested. I was down there with everybody else. I don’t know what’s going on. As soon as they came, I left. It’s because I’m well known. It’s because I have 40,000 people watching.”

“So everybody knows, we were going to our vehicle, which they had all surrounded and waiting for me with giant guns and a giant truck behind them just so they could arrest me. I hope you’re watching mainstream media,” Shai says before she is taken away by police.

Fast forward to the 2:00:00 mark to see Shai‘s interaction with police and her arrest.

    Her career was over months ago anyway. So this arrest doesn’t really matter.

    Hang in there Sha, they think they can intimidate the water defenders by making an example of you. They are an occupying force and invaders on sacred lands. The water defends are going no where.

    Stay defiant sister.
