HUBBARD COUNTY

Brandon Czanstowski, 19, of Buffalo suffered fatal injuries in the Oct. 9 crash in Steamboat River Township.
Nearly 900 people have been arrested during protests against the Line 3 oil pipeline, which is being built in northern Minnesota. Most were cited with misdemeanors, but many have been charged with gross misdemeanors or felony charges. The number of legal cases is straining resources in the northern Minnesota counties where most of the protests took place. In addition to waiting for months for a public defender, some defendants also argue that the charges they're facing are unfairly severe.
The sheriff's office and the 1855 Treaty Authority also commented on the situation developing Monday morning, June 28 in the Hinds Lake area.
Officers from 31 different law enforcement agencies assisted in the removal of the demonstrators from private property. A total of 179 demonstrators were arrested and charged with gross misdemeanor trespassing with an additional 68 individuals cited with public nuisance and unlawful assembly.
