HOUSTON (AP) - Actress Daryl Hannah has been arrested along with a 78-year-old northeast Texas landowner while protesting construction of a pipeline designed to bring crude oil from Canada to Gulf Coast refineries.

Hannah's manager, Paul Bassis, says Hannah was arrested Thursday evening.

Bassis says Hannah and landowner Eleanor Fairchild were standing in front of heavy equipment brought onto the woman's property in Winnsboro, about 100 miles east of Dallas.

Bassis says both women are being taken to the Wood County Jail.

Hannah, who starred in "Splash" and "Kill Bill," also was arrested in August 2011 while protesting the Keystone XL pipeline in Washington.

Several acres of Fairchild's farm have been condemned by TransCanada. She says she opposes TransCanada's plan to transport heavy tar-sands crude from Canada to the Gulf Coast.
