Shailene Woodley: I Was Strip-Searched After Dakota Pipeline Arrest

Shailene Woodley (photosShailene Woodley photos) is opening up about last year's arrest at the Dakota Access pipeline and says she was strip-searched.

Woodley, 25, was arrested and charged in October with criminal trespassing and engaging in a riot while protesting at the Standing Rock reservation in North Dakota.

The actress tells Marie Claire UK she was taken to the Morton County jail.

"I was strip-searched, Like 'Get naked, turn over, spread your butt cheeks, bend over.'"

"When you're in a jail cell and they shut that door, you realize no one can save you," she explains.

"If there's a fire and they decide not to open the door, you'll die. You are a caged animal."

Woodley says she turned off her phone for three months while experiencing symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.

"There was so much trauma. Mine was like, 'What do I do now?'Kind of like a little bit of depression."

The Morton County Sheriff's Department claims it was "standard procedure."

"As is standard procedure within detention facilities, all arrested individuals must undergo a visual assessment in which they are checked for any open wounds or sores, bruising, cuts or other health risks, as well as the possession of drugs," it says.

"This is to ensure the safety of the other inmates in which they will be housed. All female inmates are assessed by female law enforcement, and male inmates by male law enforcement."
