He allegedly threatened the worker, then slashed the pickup’s tires. He is also accused of lighting a can of gas on the entryway to the property, according to an affidavit filed with the complaint.
Morton County deputies responded to the scene and arrested Hill.
Morton County spokeswoman Maxine Herr said Hill reported that he was staying in Fort Yates.
Herr said it was the first pipeline protest-related incident, outside of the recovered body, since the camps closed in February.
South Central District Judge Bruce Romanick set bond for Hill at 10 percent of $5,000 on May 8. Hill is required to avoid contact with the security worker and any DAPL properties.
