CANNON BALL, N.D. | Charges have been filed against Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein and her running mate, Ajamu Baraka.

On Tuesday, the Morton County Sheriff's Department accused Stein of spray-painting equipment Tuesday at a Dakota Access Pipeline work site, located south of Mandan.

Stein and Baraka are charged with criminal trespass and criminal mischief, both Class B misdemeanors. The Morton County Sheriff's department has issued warrants of arrest.

According to an affidavit filed in Morton County District Court on Wednesday, law enforcement officers viewed a video of Stein spray-painting "I approve this message," on equipment. Officers also saw a video of Baraka painting the word “decolonization."
