Authorities say 26 protesters were arrested Thursday in Hubbard County.

The Northern Lights Task Force said the Hubbard County Sheriff's Office received a report of Enbridge Line 3 pipeline protesters standing on the side of U.S. Highway 71 at a pipeline crossing in Lake Alice Township.

When authorities arrived, they found several vehicles parked along the highway, a crowd of protesters standing on the edge of the road and about 20 people on private property within the pipeline easement.

A dispersal order was given but several people refused to move, the task force said.
