1019-shailene-woodley-tmz-01Shailene Woodley pleaded not guilty to rioting at the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the rush is on to cover every second of the case. 

Shailene wasn't in the North Dakota court Wednesday morning, but her attorney entered the plea. She's charged with one count of misdemeanor criminal trespass and one count of misdemeanor engaging in a riot. As soon as local media caught wind of her plea, they filed docs asking for video cameras to be allowed in court.

The judge approved, so if her case goes to trial she'll have another platform to state her protest against the pipeline. 

But since she's facing 2 misdemeanors ... we smell a plea deal.
