The incident came as Stop Line 3 protesters moved through downtown, focusing on different funders of the proposed replacement and expansion of an oil pipeline that would go from the Canadian province of Alberta to Superior, Wisconsin.
Protesters say the new corridor would harm watersheds, wild rice lands and Anishinaabe treaty territories. They argue corporations should clean up an existing, old pipeline.
