Tris got arrested! Divergent star Shailene Woodley, who is known for her naturalist lifestyle off-screen, was arrested on Monday, Oct. 10. But it’s not what you think.
Woodley wasn’t driving drunk…or dodging her bills like Tyga. She was apprehended by authorities for participating in a protest and she used Facebook Live to stream footage of her arrest. How thoroughly millennial of her.
Sources confirm that Woodley, 24, has been charged with criminal trespassing. While being arrested, Woodley asked the cops if her celebrity status was the reason that she was singled out and being cuffed, while dozens of other protestors were doing exactly the same thing. Indeed, cops affirmed that Woodley was “identified.”
So, what, exactly was Shailene protesting? She is anti the construction of the $3.8 billion Dakota Access Pipeline in Bismarck, North Dakota. Opponents of the pipeline, which would snake through both North and South Dakota, as well as Iowa and Illinois, strongly believe it poses potential hazards, such as leaking and contaminating the Missouri River, which supplies drinking water.
