Editor's note: As part of the Journal's ongoing coverage of the massive Dakota Access Pipeline protest in North Dakota, staff writer Mike Anderson has been camping in a tent near the protest site. He filed this dispatch from the scene on Saturday.

CANNON BALL, N.D. | A peaceful protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline ended in the arrests of 83 people in North Dakota on Saturday morning amid a chaotic scene in which police in riot gear used pepper spray to break up and subdue a group of 200 to 300 protesters.

It is the highest number of people arrested in a single day in North Dakota during the last several months of protest actions against the oil pipeline, bringing the total number of arrests up to 222.
