5 Arrested In Whiteclay Protest; Minor Boy Cited

August 27, 2012, 9:30 AM


Five people protesting beer sales in the northern Nebraska town of Whiteclay were arrested when they locked arms and blocked a road.

The arrests came Sunday night, about seven hours after the protesters sat down on Highway 87. Officers also cited a boy who had a knife with a weapons violation and released him to his mother.

An estimated 150-200 people walked the two miles from Pine Ridge, S.D., to Whiteclay on Sunday to protest beer sales in the Nebraska town that borders South Dakota's Pine Ridge Reservation, where alcohol is banned but alcohol abuse is rampant.

Some protesters were pepper-sprayed by police when they tried to block a law enforcement vehicle and take an arrested person out of the vehicle.
