Hannah freed following arrest in pipeline protest
TYLER, Texas (AP) — Actress Daryl Hannah has been released from a Texas jail following her arrest as she protested an oil pipeline designed to bring crude from Canada to the Gulf Coast.
The Tyler Morning Telegraph reports (bit.ly/QMlAo1) Saturday that Hannah was freed on $2,500 bond Thursday night but faces criminal trespass charges.
Her release came hours after Hannah was arrested in Winnsboro, about 100 miles east of Dallas.
Hannah and 78-year-old Eleanor Fairchild were arrested as they blocked heavy equipment in an attempt to halt construction of the Keystone XL pipeline through Fairchild's land. Fairchild was released on a personal recognizance bond.
Hannah also was arrested in August 2011 while protesting the pipeline in Washington.
Her manager, Paul Bassis, told the Telegraph, "When people engage in civil disobedience, it's a last resort."
