A woman accused of shooting at law enforcement officers during the Dakota Access Pipeline protests was arrested for violating her release conditions.

Red Fawn Fallis reportedly left her halfway house to attend a mandatory adult learning class Thursday morning, but she did not show. After being gone all day without authorities knowing her whereabouts, Fallis showed up a half hour late to her halfway house. Upon her late arrival, Fallis was arrested and taken to jail, the Associated Press reported.

Fallis is accused of firing three shots at officers in the midst of being arrested Oct. 27 while law enforcement cleared the northern “front line” camp in North Dakota. An officer who was on the scene said he saw one of the rounds fired by Fallis hit the ground near his knee. She also reportedly told officers that they were lucky she did not shoot them all. (RELATED: Federal Court Charges Dakota Access Pipeline Protester With Felony)

The news comes as Fallis was about to begin her trial Jan. 29. She reportedly had worked out a deal to avoid a life sentence, but it is unclear if this arrest will change prosecutors’ minds.
