Photos: Pipeline protest results in almost 40 arrests

Cars and signs lined Mississippi River Road in Sandusky, Iowa, on Saturday. Nearly 150 people gathered to protest the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, which is slated to run underneath the Mississippi river into Illinois. Protesters gathered at the entrance to the pipeline worksite and eventually moved on to the property, passing pipeline security and law enforcement.

Approximately 40 adults and five minors were arrested without incident and charged with trespassing; a portion of these protesters made it into the pipeline worksite, causing the crew to halt production. Those who were arrested were cited and released from the Lee County Jail after processing.
