Police in Portland, Oregon reportedly escorted religious protestors out of the park where the annual Pride parade is held after someone dispersed tear gas to disturb the revelry.


Attendee Samantha Wallschlaeger posted video of protestors being led away by police on Twitter.

Moments before, the local police scanner Twitter account had posted about callers reporting that they were under siege by protestors, one of whom was "macing everything" and causing attendees to hide behind a flag.
