SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — Police in South Burlington, Vermont, have arrested a man involved in a protest at Vermont Gas on a trespassing charge.

A group that opposes a Vermont Gas natural gas pipeline to extend service to Addison and Rutland counties protested outside of the company's headquarters on May 27. Police say a protester injured a worker while trying to chain a protester to the door. The female employee was struck in the arm by the large chain.

Police said two other protesters went to the roof to display a banner. One of them, identified as 25-year-old William Bennington of Plainfield, was arrested Thursday at a public meeting on the pipeline at Middlebury Union High School.

Police say they're still looking for the other rooftop protester and the one who injured the worker.
