Shailene Woodley was arrested for criminal trespassing while protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline earlier this morning.

Woodley was one of about 100 protesters conducting a "peaceful protest" at a construction site for the controversial pipeline project, which would threaten the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's main source of water, destroy sacred sites and violate treaty agreements. However, a federal appeals court rejected the tribe's bid to permanently halt construction on Sunday, following a temporary halting of construction last month -- hence the renewed round of protests.

Her arrest was also captured on a Facebook Live stream.

We will update as soon as more information becomes available.
