MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — No charges are expected after locked-out American Crystal Sugar workers say vehicles bumped into them on a Moorhead picket line.

Moorhead Police Lt. Tory Jacobson tells KFGO-AM that in two separate incidents Friday, locked-out workers claim they were intentionally bumped by vehicles crossing the picket line.

Up to 25 pickets were walking near a gate when the incidents happened.

Jacobson says police have been speaking with locked-out workers and Crystal officials to ensure everyone’s safety.

Union workers at Crystal have been locked out since Aug. 1.
