On Wednesday, January 6th Oregon State Police, Salem Police Department, and Marion County Sheriff’s Office personnel were monitoring a protest that was occurring at the Oregon State Capitol.
At approximately 2:00 P.M., a group of counter protesters arrived at the Capitol and a fight broke out between the opposing sides. Law Enforcement quickly separated the two groups and worked to keep the two groups apart for the remainder of the day.
David Willis (43) of Lincoln City, was arrested and charged with harassment and disorderly conduct. The investigation is continuing and more charges are possible after consultation with the Marion County District Attorney.
