"An estimated 400 Dakota Access pipeline demonstrators clashed early Monday morning with police at a highway barrier manned by dozens of officers. Advancing protesters met a police response of tear gas, rubber bullets and a water cannon that soaked them in below-freezing temperatures. The protesters gathered near Backwater Bridge, trying to go north on highway 1806 while law enforcement officers formed a line north of the bridge to stop them. Protest organizers say 167 people were hurt, with seven hospitalized for head injuries. Police claim they have 'not received any reports that can be verified of protesters that were injured,' and say one officer was hit in the head with a rock.
