Actress Daryl Hannah and Winnsboro landowner Eleanor Fairchild were arrested this afternoon while protesting the Keystone XL pipeline in Winnsboro.

According to Wood County LT. Jerry Blaylock, Hannah was charged with Criminal Trespass and Resisting Arrest. Fairchild was charged with Criminal Trespass and Obstructing Passageway.

The women ran in front of construction equipment while Transcanda was working on the pipeline. When authorities asked them women to leave they refused.

Fairchild and Hannah were taken into custody at approximately 4 p.m. and transported to the Wood County Jail.

Hannah was arrested last year outside of the White House while protesting the Keystone XL Pipeline.

A group of protesters, self-titled Tarsands Blockade, have set up camp in Winnsboro protesting the pipeline, which runs through East Texas to the Texas Coast, for nearly two weeks.
