Wondering what happened to the man wielding a gun yesterday afternoon at Occupy Portland?
After being taken into custody for carrying a gun after engaging in a fight on the Occupy Portland grounds, 32-year-old Jason Charles Parker (a concealed handgun license holder) was released this morning from Multnomah County Jail.
According to the Portland Police Bureau officers, Parker was filming Occupy Portland happenings at Lownsdale Park when he was "verbally challenged" by several occupiers. This sparked a verbal argument between Parker and the occupiers where a racial slur was directed at Parker. Thus, the handgun was revealed.
