Shailene Woodley Pleads Not Guilty After Arrest During Pipeline Protest

Shailene Woodley has pleaded not guilty after being arrested during a peaceful protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline, according to TMZ.

The 24-year-old actress was not present in the courtroom on Wednesday morning (October 19) but her lawyer entered the plea at the North Dakota courthouse.

Shailene was charged with one count of misdemeanor criminal trespass and one count of misdemeanor engaging in a riot.

She was arrested last week while protesting despite complying with officers requests and documented the entire event on Facebook Live. Shailene was taken to a local jail but was released hours later.

The new pipeline has caused controversy because it is set to be built on Standing Rock Sioux land and burial grounds.
