Shailene Woodley was arrested last year for trespassing at the Dakota Access Pipeline site during a protest and she has now reached a plea deal in which she will plead guilty.
The 25-year-old Divergent actress has been a very vocal supporter of the fight against the pipeline and she was arrested with several others when she refused to leave a construction site back in October. Shai was broadcasting on Facebook Live throughout the protest and her entire arrest was caught on video.
The terms of the plea deal include Shailene pleading guilty to one count of disorderly conduct. She will be given one year unsupervised probation, according to legal docs that TMZ has obtained.
The 25-year-old actress, who is busy promoting her new show Big Little Lies, stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Monday (February 13) and was asked about protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline in Standing Rock, North Dakota.
“I wish I’d known that this was going to be as public as it was,” Shai said of her mug shot. “I would have made, like, a face. I’m just looking at the person, like, ‘Are you kidding me right now?’”
He mom was with her at the time, Shai explained, “I handed her my phone and I was like, ‘Keep recording.’ I can’t imagine what it would be like to watch your daughter be handcuffed and taken away.”

If there was any hope at all that Shailene Woodley would change her mind about appearing in the Divergent TV movie, kiss those goodbye.
The actress, who was asked about the franchise at her Big Little Lies premiere earlier this week, dashed all the hope away.
“No,” she quickly replied. “I’m not going to be on the television show.”
Late last year, Shailene was saying almost the exact same thing: “Last I heard they were trying to make it into a television show. I didn’t sign up to be in a television show…I’m not necessarily interested in doing a television show.”
Earlier that summer, Lionsgate announced that the final film, Ascendant, would skip the big screen for a TV movie and spinoff series.
“Historians confirmed the existence of another constitution. And it’s called the ‘Alternative Constitution.’ And Trump was accidentally given the only other copy when he was a teen. He’s working from the wrong constitution and he doesn’t even know it,” they joked.
