Charges Dropped Against City Of Bismarck, Police Officers over DAPL Activism

(Bismarck, ND) -- The City of Bismarck and two police officers are no longer facing charges in connection to a Dakota Access Pipeline protest.  

A judge dismissed charges against officers claiming they arrested veterans being transported to the protest on a warrant that the rental had been stolen. Partners Michael and Jessica Wood say they paid for transporting for the veterans and that the vehicle wasn't stolen.  

The charges against the two officers were dropped when it was determined they were acting in good faith when they detained the suspects. Charges against the city were also dropped.
