A video tweeted early Wednesday morning shows Portland police officers chasing and tackling a protester. The footage does not indicate what the person did to attract the officers’ attention.

The video, tweeted by Portland freelance journalist Laura Jedeed, shows multiple police officers chasing down and tackling a subject.

The video shows the protester wearing a full helmet, gas mask, and protective vest.

Another video tweeted at about the same time shows Portland police arrested two protesters who sat down in the middle of the street and refused orders to move.

Journalist Andy Ngô retweeted the video of the police tackle, calling the subject a “black bloc rioter.”

The incident followed another tweet showing a transgender woman taunting police in the street while wearing a sparkling silver dress.
