According to CBS News, Law enforcement stated that the protesters were building a man-made, wooden bridge to get across Cantapeta Creek. Officials came out to say that protesters involved in the building of the bridge violated numerous federal and state laws, including, the Clean Water Act and the Safe River and Harbors Act.
