Portland police arrest 6 during protest


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Portland police say six people were arrested in connection with a protest that blocked traffic on Interstate 5 in southeast Portland.

Saturday night’s protest was in conjunction with a nationwide protest called, “The Million Mask March.”

The group of protesters temporarily blocked northbound traffic on the freeway causing long delays. Police initially focused on stopping traffic to avoid any collisions between drivers and protesters on the freeway.

Protesters left the freeway and marched on city streets. That’s where the six people were arrested.

Those six people ranged in age from 25 to 51. The charges included disorderly conduct, criminal trespass and interfering with a police officer.
