It’s been nearly a year since Shailene Woodley was arrested at the site of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests in North Dakota.

In a recent interview with the magazine Marie Claire UK, Woodley sheds more light on what happened when she was arrested. According to Woodley, she was strip searched. From the interview:

‘I was strip-searched. Like get naked, turn over, spread your butt cheeks, bend over. They were looking for drugs in my ass.’

She continued on about how she was not a fan of the jail experience.

When you’re in a jail cell and they shut that door, you realise no one can save you. If there’s a fire and they decide not to open the door, you’ll die. You are a caged animal.

Woodley was originally charged with criminal trespass and engaging in a riot according to USA Today. Although she initially pleaded not guilty, in March she entered into a plea agreement for misdemeanor disorderly conduct in order to avoid jail time. Woodley is serving one year of unsupervised probation and faced a $500 fine.
