A Detroit Lakes resident was among 26 people arrested at the site of a Line 3 pipeline protest in Hubbard County on Thursday, March 25.

At 11:17 a.m. March 25, the Hubbard County Sheriff’s Office received a report of about 30 pipeline protesters standing on the side of US Highway 71 at an Enbridge pipeline crossing in Hubbard County's Lake Alice Township. Officers found numerous vehicles parked along the highway, a crowd of protesters standing on the edge of the roadway, and approximately 20-protesters on private property within the pipeline easement.

A dispersal order was given to those on the highway and also to those trespassing on private property. Some individuals complied with the order as they moved their vehicles and left the area.
