ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7) An opponent of the Mountain Valley Pipeline was arrested Wednesday while protesting the project in West Virginia.

The group Appalachians Against Pipelines says the protester spent over seven hours chained to an excavator on a worksite in Summers County.

The group says the protester was charged with two misdemeanors and a felony, and bond was set at $6,000.

Another protest continues in Montgomery County where tree sitters have been blocking the path of the pipeline for almost 300 days.
