Nez Perce tribal police arrested and cited 19 people for disorderly conduct in connection with the protest of an oil refinery equipment shipment traveling via megaload truck through tribal lands.
The truck resumed its journey along U.S. Highway 12 around 2:30 this morning after members of the Nez Perce Reservation and other activists attempted to halt its progress.
Helen Yost, a spokeswoman of environmentalist group Wild Idaho Rising Tide that joined tribal members in their protest of the shipment, monitored activity on social media and through media reports. She also spoke with several protesters at the scene as they returned to their homes around 4 a.m.
