The Federal Protective Service officers who arrested the man gave no reason as to why he was arrested and the man provided no details to the amassing crowd who wanted to help.
Reportedly his arrest was not concerning the Occupy Portland movement.
Police were mobilising in riot gear under the Morrison Bridge shortly before the arrest but were not involved in this operation.
According to a report on Oregon Live entitled 'Occupy Portland: Federal officials tell protesters no camping in Schrunk Plaza' by Anne Saker it is stated that at "4:25 p.m. Amy Ruiz, Mayor Sam Adams' spokeswoman, tweets: Rumor control: No "riot police" near #occupyportland (or anywhere else). Just a squad in regular uniform, keeping zombie march safe."
When the police were questioned if they were under the bridge for the zombie march, they responded that they were not.
The occupation has erected a handful of tents on Terry Shrunk Plaza which is a Federal Park with a 10pm curfew.
