TROUTDALE, Ore. (AP) -- Police say they have arrested a woman at the picket line in a teacher strike in the Reynolds School District east of Portland.

She was accused of interfering with a police officer -- trying to push past an officer who had told her to stop while buses were leaving the school yard.

She was identified as 53-year-old LeAnn K. Traylor of Salem. Police said they didn't know whether she was a teacher or a supporter. Police say she was cited and released.

The strike began Monday, and classes were cancelled. A round of mediated talks was scheduled Friday.
