Daryl Hannah was arrested in Texas on Thursday night while protesting against the construction of an oil pipeline.

The Roxanne actress, a longtime environmental campaigner, has been leading a demonstration against the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, which is being built to transfer crude oil from Canada to refineries on the Gulf Coast.

She was arrested on Thursday along with 78-year-old Eleanor Fairchild on suspicion of criminal trespassing and resisting arrest after they stood in front of construction equipment.

The pair was taken to the Wood County Jail in Quitman, Texas.
