Iowa woman arrested on own property for interfering with DAPL construction
CALHOUN COUNTY, IA - Typically we've seen Dakota Access Pipeline protesters arrested for trespassing on other people's land, but in Iowa over the weekend one landowner was arrested on her own property.
Cyndy Coppola was arrested on Saturday on her family's farm in Calhoun County Iowa.
She says Dakota Access gained rights to be on her property against her and her family's will. They used condemnation court and eminent domain to get easements to the property. On Saturday Coppola and friend Ed Fallon were arrested after they attempted to block trucks carrying pipeline across her farm.
