One arrest, two expulsions at Occupy Portland



PRESS RELEASE – On Friday, one subject was arrested for Disorderly Conduct, two subjects were cited and excluded for Alcohol in the Park, and two subjects were excluded for Possession of Marijuana in the Park.

Another man, 36-year-old Christopher David Bartz, was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on an outstanding drug-related warrant and also charged with Offensive Littering and Drugs in the Park and excluded from Lownsdale and Chapman Squares.

Officers saw a Bartz dumping a plastic bottle of what appeared to be urine into the street and made contact with him. Bartz denied that the substance was urine despite the officers’ ability to identify the overwhelming smell of urine and marijuana coming from Bartz.
