HUBBARD COUNTY, Minn. (Valley News Live) - More than two dozen people from a dozen different states were arrested in Hubbard County, Minnesota, after taking part in a protest against the Enbridge pipeline.

The Hubbard County Sheriff’s Office says approximately 30 protesters were standing on the side of US Highway 71 at a pipeline crossing in Lake Alice Township on March 25. Lake Alice Township is located near Itasca State Park, north of Park Rapids.

When officers arrived, they found numerous vehicles parked along the highway, a crowd standing on the edge of the roadway, and approximately 20 protesters on private property.

A dispersal order was given to those who were on the highway and trespassing on private property. Some moved their vehicles and left the area, but the protesters that remained were locked together in a circle and were surrounding other protesters who also refused to leave.
