Pipeline protester leader, tribal chairman plead not guilty to charges


BISMARCK — A Dakota Access Pipeline protester who pleaded not guilty Monday to trespassing on pipeline construction sites was driving an SUV with expired tabs owned by the Democratic candidate for U.S. House when he was arrested Friday.

Candidate Chase Iron Eyes confirmed that he lent his late 1990s Suburban to longtime friend Cody Charles Hall, 39, of Eagle Butte, S.D., so that Hall could drive someone to the airport in Bismarck from the main protest encampment about 35 miles southeast of Mandan.

A deputy recognized Hall on State Highway 1806, and he was pulled over for expired tabs in the Fort Rice area, Morton County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Donnell Preskey said.
