Stadium protesters won’t be charged until after investigation

The Dakota Access Pipeline protesters at U.S. Bank Stadium over the weekend were set free, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be charged at some point.

Rochelle Olson of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

The protesters, who were booked into the Hennepin County jail on Sunday, were out within 24 hours, but they could still face charges after the investigation is complete, deputy Minneapolis City Attorney Mary Ellen Heng said.

The three are Karl Mayo, 32 and the son of former Green Party Minneapolis City Council Member Dean Zimmermann; Sen Holiday, 26, and Carolyn Feldman, 27. Mayo and Holiday scrambled over a wall on a public concourse to reach the ladder on one of the two main steel trusses supporting the stadium roof. From there they climbed the ladder to the catwalk and dropped down to unfurl a giant banner protesting the Dakota Access oil pipeline and U.S. Bank’s involvement.
