PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The Multnomah County District Attorney's Office won't file a domestic violence assault charge against environmental activist Tre Arrow.

The office says his girlfriend refused to cooperate in the investigation of an incident Tuesday at their Portland home. Police say they were arguing over his "hoarding" on the backyard deck when she raised her fists and he grabbed her forearms and pushed her into a railing.

The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/RljPss ) he remains in jail for a possible federal probation violation. He was released from prison in 2009 after serving time for setting fire to concrete-mixing trucks and logging trucks.

Formerly known as Michael Scarpitti, he's also known for sitting on the window ledge at the Forest Service's Portland headquarters in 2000.

He's currently one of 23 people running for Portland mayor.
