MANDAN, N.D. - A Dakota Access Pipeline protester wanted on several felony warrants has turned himself in to authorities.

The Morton County Sheriff's Department says James White is in custody for reckless endangerment, attempting to elude a police officer, reckless driving, and felonious restraint.

Authorities say the charges stem from two incidents: one where he restrained journalists at a protest camp and the other where he was found recklessly driving with unrestrained passengers in the vehicle.

They say two other protesters were arrested yesterday for trespassing near Turtle Hill.

Now law enforcement has made 585 arrests since August 10 related to the protest.
