“Anne Rolfes and Kate McIntosh, environmental activists with the Louisiana Bucket Brigade, turned themselves into the Baton Rouge Police Department Thursday to be booked on counts stemming from a plastic pollution awareness event that took place more than seven months ago.
Rolfes was booked with terrorizing, a felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison. McIntosh was booked with principal to terrorizing. The women are accused of menacing a lobbyist for the oil and gas industry with a file box full of plastic pellets, also called nurdles, found in Texas bays near a plastic manufacturing facility owned by Formosa Plastics.
A police detective called a lawyer representing the pair to alert them that there was a warrant out for their arrest.”
