Minneapolis police apprehended two Dakota Access oil pipeline demonstrators on Sunday who unfurled a huge banner inside U.S. Bank Stadium during a Minnesota Vikings game.

The man and woman were arrested after climbing into a catwalk just after the Vikings’ season finale against the Chicago Bears objective around 3 p. m.

Police spokesman Officer Corey Schmidt said the pair had been insured by medical staff but diminished treatment. The duet is set to be booked into the Hennepin County Jail for trespassing.

Schmidt replied police will be reviewed by for possible further charges.

Play continued on the field while the huge placard was unfurled, but rows below were cleared of devotees as a precaution. No one was hurt.

The banner urged Minneapolis-based U.S. Bank to divest from the four-state, $3.8 billion pipe. A U.S. Bank spokesman diminished comment.
