Portland driver at center of viral protest video says he just wanted to escape
A driver who pushed through a crowd of demonstrators in downtown Portland while they pounded on his sedan and yelled for him to stop says, contrary to their accusations, that he never tried to run them over.
But Kent Houser, 74, admits he was eager to bolt the chaotic scene.
“When you have an angry mob yelling at you and beating on your car you just want to get out of there,” he said Friday in an interview with The Oregonian/OregonLive.
The incident, which unfolded Saturday during a march to protest a fatal police shooting the previous night, was relatively minor by Portland standards. It spawned no injuries, arrests or riots.
