Daryl Hannah released after pipeline arrest

  • Actress Daryl Hannah has been released from a Texas jail after she was arrested for protesting against a pipeline designed to bring crude oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast.

    The Tyler Morning Telegraph reported that Hannah was freed on a bond of $2,500 on Thursday but faces criminal trespass charges.

    She was released just hours following her arrest in Winnsboro, about 100 miles east of Dallas.

    Hannah and 78-year-old Eleanor Fairchild were arrested for blocking heavy equipment in a bid to stop construction of the Keystone XL pipeline through Fairchild's land.

    Fairchild was released on a personal recognisance bond.

    Hannah was previously arrested in August 2011 while protesting against the pipeline in Washington.
