Actress Shailene Woodley has be released from jail after being arrested for trespassing in North Dakota on Monday while protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline. In all, 27 people were arrested in the protest, which occurred at a construction location. Most were for criminal trespassing, though there were two felony arrests, for protesters who chained themselves to construction equipment. Woodley posted a live video of the protest on Facebook. The proposed pipeline has drawn criticism, particularly from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, who say it would destroy sacred sites. On Sunday, the U.S. Court of Appeals shot down the tribe’s request for a permanent injunction against the project, paving the way for Dallas’s Energy Transfer Partners to continue construction.

Tyler Farr has tied the knot with his girlfriend Hannah Freeman. According to People, the couple said “I do” in a 30-minute ceremony under a covered pavilion decorated with sunflowers in Nolensville, Tennessee, on Monday night. “I’ve only had a few serious relationships in my life and I was not expecting to fall off the deep end when I met her,” Farr says of his new wife. “But when I first began spending time with her, it was just over. I just knew. She is probably the kindest person I’ve ever met.” Among the 220 guests in attendance were groomsmen Jason Aldean, Lee Brice and Colt Ford, as well as Farr’s recent tour mates Maddie & Tae.
Provided this isn’t another of his elaborate bits of performance art, Shia LaBeouf married his longtime girlfriend, fellow actor Mia Goth, at the Viva Las Vegas wedding chapel in Sin City on Monday. Presiding over the nuptials was an Elvis Presley impersonator; the normally scruffy LaBeaouf looked remarkably clean-shaven, while Goth resembled a young Sissy Spacek, as always. TMZ actually live-streamed the ceremony. After the pair, who met on the set of Nymphomaniac: Volume II in 2012, officially tied the knot, they kissed excitedly and danced to Bruce Springsteen’s “Hungry Heart.”
Samsung is stopping sales and suspending production of its Galaxy Note 7 over reports that the battery can catch fire. Samsung says people with an original Note 7 or a replacement should “power down and stop using the device.” Samsung recalled two and-a-half million Note 7 devices last month after batteries in some of the smartphones caught fire. Samsung offered owners replacements and at least three of those devices reportedly overheated in less than a week this month. (WSJ)
If you’re tired of cleaning dog fur off of your couch you might want to consider getting your pet a Shed Defender. Tyson Walters invented the item, which looks across between a 1980s aerobics outift and a superhero getup. The skin-tight leotard essentially keeps a dog’s fur from getting everywhere as the animal sheds. Walters says the item is lightweight, eco-friendly, and completely safe and comfortable for dogs.
