We had reporters on scene all day.
Shelby Rose says once protesters were pushed back from the north camp, some went on to pipeline property.
Construction equipment was lit on fire.
Soon after, a man sped through cars and crowds in a white pick up.
Protesters say it was a member of DAPL security.
The driver of a silver truck then hit the white truck, causing it to stop.
The driver of the white truck got out, waded into water, and waived a gun at protesters.
There was a confrontation in the water.
A short time later the man's truck lit on fire.
The Bureau of Indian Affairs arrived, took the man in custody and escorted the man with the gun away from the area.
