From The Bismarck Tribune: Pipeline protesters attempted to remove burned out vehicles blocking the Backwater Bridge on Highway 1806, which led to an hours-long standoff with police using water cannons to repel protesters on Sunday night.
The bridge has been closed since Oct. 27. Multiple vehicles burned there that night as law enforcement pushed protesters out of the northern "front line" camp atop the pipeline route and back to the main camps near the Standing Rock Indian Reservation....
According to the sheriff's department, the incident began around 6 p.m. and one arrest was made as of 8:30 p.m. The sheriff's department is characterizing the protesters as "very aggressive" and said they have attempted to "flank and attack the law enforcement line."
Dallas Goldtooth, an organizer with the Indigenous Environmental Network, reported Sunday night that police sprayed protesters with a water cannon and used tear gas and concussion grenades to repel the protesters. It was 26 degrees in Cannon Ball at 9 p.m. He said the fires reported by police were set in order to help people warm up who had been sprayed....
Goldtooth said numerous people have been struck in the head with rubber bullets and one person was in cardiac arrest from a direct hit.
