An #Occupy Portland protester pushed a police sergeant into a moving bus yesterday during a protest march against police violence.

Breitbart TV has video.

KATU reported, via Orbusmax:

Police made one arrest during the march. They said 30-year-old David Anthony Burgess shoved a police sergeant into a TriMet bus while it was moving, then dashed back into the crowd.

The sergeant suffered minor injuries and did not require medical treatment, police said.

Police later found Burgess after the march and arrested him. He was booked into the Multnomah County Jail, accused of assaulting a police officer, interfering with police, second-degree disorderly conduct and harassment.

The march became large enough that Portland police had to call in extra help from its Rapid Response Team, traffic division and officers from all three precincts to help control the crowd.

The local march of hundreds of people was part of a larger nationwide event.

Also joining Portland’s march were several veterans groups. The groups united in solidarity and urged an end to what they call police violence.

Another successful rally against police violence.
