In Tyler, Texas, on December 3, according to Ecowatch.org:   

 

"The police threatened a variety of dangerous and violent responses including tear gas, canine units, cutting into the pipe or lifting it up to dump out the blockaders. Eventually, they were able to forcibly remove the blockaders and the barrels they were locked into.

Both blockaders, Glen Collins and Matt Almonte, were extracted and arrested. Isabel Indigo Brooks, who had been inside the pipe to provide support for Matt and Glen, was also arrested.  All three have been charged with three misdemeanors: criminal trespassing, resisting arrest and illegal dumping of more than 500-1000 pounds.

We haven't yet learned whether the police used mace or other means of pain  compliance or if any of the blockaders were injured by the police. 

 

Although the Smith County District Attorney has piled on the charges and bail on the three pipe-sitters was set at $65,000 each, the Smith County Sheriff's Department felt called upon to announce that they had not used pepper spray. 

 

Responding to the removal of the protestors sealed in their pipe, TransCanada responded with this  statement by David Dodson: "It is unfortunate these protestors are trying to keep thousands of Americans from the jobs they depend on to provide for their families. This project is important, not only to thousands of workers, but also to Americans in general."
