Shailene Woodley: Mug Shot, Statement Released

by at .

As previously reported, Shailene Woodley was arrested this week.

The young actress was booked on a charge of trespassing on Monday while she was protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline in Bismarck, North Dakota.

A day after the incident went viral, authorities released the following mug shot to the public:

Shailene Woodley Mug Shot

Unlike many celebrities, Woodley really does own this mug shot, doesn't she?

Her braided hair is in place. She's staring right into the camera. Her skin even looks flawless.

Along similar lines, Woodley also owned her arrest.

The Divergent star actually filmed herself at the scene, talking about her interactions with the police and how she was arrested simply because she’s famous.

"I don't know if you guys just heard me, but I was walking back to my RV, which is right there so that we can go back to camp peacefully and they grabbed me by my jacket and said that I was not allowed to continue," Woodley explains below.

Of the police, she adds: "They had giant guns and batons and zip ties and they're not letting me go."

She also said the cops admitted that Woodley was taken into custody because she was well-known.

As for the cause itself?

We're guessing Woodley sees it as far more important than anything that happened to her.

“I am Shailene Woodley. I am a 24-year-old woman who cares about not only the generations that are alive right now but the generations to come,” the Snowden actress said as she filmed an interview.

“And we’re here to protect clean water, and we’re here to protect the land and to reconnect humanity to our roots, which is the Earth, which is recognizing that we cannot help the Earth, we cannot do anything to and for the Earth, until we realize that we are made of the Earth.

"So we have to start with ourselves.”

With a scarf around her head and neck, Woodley was on hand to protest (with over 200 people) against the 1,172-mile pipeline that would run from the oil-rich Bakken Formation southeast into South Dakota, Iowa, and Illinois.

The issue with the project is that it would stretch very close to historically significant Native American tribal lands and would harm the environment.

Woodley has since been released... and has jumped on Instagram to issue another statement.

As a caption to the following picture, she wrote on Tuesday:

"One day, baby, we'll sing our poetry. The words dripping from our tongues wet with ripened patience.

"And the lyrics, the sweet fruits born from the seeds our aging hands are now sowing. #alwaysinallways #heartforward #uptous #NoDAPL #protectcleanwater #iamonyourside."

The Morton County Sheriff has confirmed that Woodley was arrested, but says 26 other protesters were also arrested. She was not the only one, as initial reports claimed.

"She appreciates the outpouring of support, not only for her, but more importantly, for the continued fight against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline," Shailene's representative told E! News after the actress was released from prison.

Woodley says some unusual stuff sometimes, as we've rundown in the following photo gallery.

But we have to salute the star in this case. She took a stand for something she believes in.

Shailene Woodley

Most people have never heard of clay, or spring water, or chlorophyll, which shocks me because that's what I revolve my life around, but then it shocks them that I know nothing about a big designer, or director, or producer.
