Actress Shailene Woodley, who was arrested by the police last week on the charge of criminal trespassing and engaging in a riot, in a protest march about the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline, says she is not guilty.
The Fault in Our Stars star pleaded to the court via her attorney that she is not guilty of the charges pressed on her by the police, of criminal trespassing and also engaging in a riot.
"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 said that I was not allowed to continue," Woodley said in a statement.
"And they had giant guns and batons and zip ties and they're not letting me go." She added.
Shailene continued saying, "Alright I'm being arrested, because I was trespassing like everyone else, but as soon as you guys asked me to leave, I l left. She was down there, everybody was down there. 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." The actress added further.
