Shailene Woodley accepts plea deal over pipeline trespassing arrest

Shailene Woodley has agreed to a plea deal over her trespassing arrest.

The actress was detained while protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline in Standing Rock, North Dakota last year.

Shailene pleaded guilty to one count of disorderly conduct and has been given one year of unsupervised probation, according to documents obtained by TMZ.

The Divergent series star was one of several people arrested in October during the peaceful protest, and she had her mother document the arrest on Facebook Live.

“I handed her my phone and I was like, ‘Keep recording,’” she recalled on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last month. “She was shocked. I can’t imagine what it would be like to watch your daughter be handcuffed and taken away.”

Speaking about how people can help, Shailene added: “The front lines don’t necessarily have to be in North Dakota.

“The front lines can be wherever you are. You can create a protest in New York City, because protests are about awareness and about people coming together.”
