Occupy Portland protesters threatened Pizza Shmizza this weekend after they ran out of breadsticks.
Portland Police Bureau reported:
Portland Fire & Rescue and Portland Police responded to reports of several small fires in the streets and sidewalks around Chapman and Lownsdale Square Parks. 29-year-old David Joseph Hodson was located and arrested for Reckless Burning (3 counts), Disorderly Conduct in the Second Degree, Criminal Mischief in the Third Degree, and Throwing Lighted Material on a Roadway (2 counts). Hodson was booked into the Multnomah County Jail. No significant property damage was associated to the fires.
One subject was cited and excluded for Alcohol in the Park.
Occupy Portland protesters became enraged when Pizza Schmizza ran out of breadsticks to accompany their order. They threatened to assault employees and vandalize the restaurant.
A pedestrian walking by the encampments at Southwest 4th Avenue and Salmon Street was confronted by several young people wearing bandanas over their faces. One of the suspects pulled a knife on the victim, while another attempted to punch him in the face. The complainant successfully fended off their attacks and was not injured. No arrests were made.

Also on Sunday, police said several Occupy Portland protesters threatened to assault employees of a Pizza Schmizza restaurant and vandalize the business when employees told them they ran out of breadsticks for their order.
According to a Pizza Schmizza spokeswoman, a lone man got mad when he was told by employees that he would have to wait 15 minutes for some breadsticks to bake.
The man then reached for the tip jar and threatened to get more people from the Occupy camp to vandalized the store, spokeswoman Holly Earle-Schultze said. That’s when staff members called police.
