Daryl Hannah Arrested Protesting Oil Pipeline
Actress Daryl Hannah was arrested in northeast Texas protesting an oil pipeline that would bring oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast.
Hannah and landowner Eleanor Fairchild were standing in front of heavy equipment in an attempt to halt construction of the Keystone XL pipeline on Fairchild’s farm in Winnsboro, a town about 100 miles east of Dallas. They were arrested for criminal trespassing and taken to the Wood County Jail, Bassis said.
Hannah and the 78-year-old landowner are likely to be released after an overnight stay in jail.
