Law enforcement officials dressed in riot gear used pepper spray and beanbag rounds to disperse hundreds of protesters at the construction site of the Dakota Access oil pipeline.

It took nearly six hours to evict the protesters who say the pipeline is too close to the Standing Rock Sioux reservation and will poison their water. Authorities say protesters started fires throughout the day, including setting some construction equipment on fire.
