Demetria Hester, a Black Lives Matter leader arrested Monday during what Portland Police had declared a riot, has been released and will not face charges.
She was taken into custody for disorderly conduct in the second degree and interfering with a peace officer, a press release from Portland Police said.
Oregon Live, an online site connected to the Oregonian newspaper, reported on the development:
The Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office declined to prosecute Portland activist Demetria Hester on Monday and criminal charges against her were dismissed a day after Portland police arrested her and several others at a protest.
On Monday, Multnomah County DA’s office spokesman Brent Weisberg said the court would dismiss the charges. “The prosecution decline decision was in the interest of justice upon reviewing the police reports in this matter,” Weisberg said in an email to The Oregonian/OregonLive.

Shocking remarks made by the Federal Elections Commission Commissioner Ellen Weintraub on Monday confirmed many Americans’ fears about mail-in ballots: the winner likely won’t be declared on election night — and she said “this is okay” that we may have delayed results.
“Let me just tell everybody, we’re all going to need to take a deep breath and be patient this year,” Weintraub said on CNN Monday morning.
“There’s a substantial chance we are not going to know on election night what the results are.”
A black man who deliberately swerved his vehicle into three white schoolboys on the sidewalk was not charged with a hate crime. The incident, which occurred last year, was only picked up by local media, prompting some to believe that the demographic nature of the crime did not match prevailing mainstream media narratives.
On April 5, 2019, 21-year-old Oghaleoghene Atunu saw three schoolboys, aged 11 and 12, stroll down a suburban sidewalk before surveilling the area, creeping behind the boys, then stepping on the accelerator before intentionally mowing the trio down.
Surveillance footage indicated that Atunu circled the cul-de-sac several times, ostensibly to look for a way to inflict the most damage, before carrying out his wanton attack and fleeing the scene, according to TapHaps.
The city dumped at least six homeless pedophiles, all still on parole, at a luxury Upper West Side hotel just a block from an elementary-school playground — an apparent violation of state law, online records show.
The outrage is only the latest slap in the face to residents of the Manhattan neighborhood — who as The Post reported have had to deal with everything from public urination to open drug use since the city began moving hundreds of homeless into the area amid the coronavirus.
“Completely unacceptable,” seethed Sabina Popovic, 32, who was at the playground with her daughter, 5, and son, 1, Friday.

U.S. federal prosecutors have produced no evidence linking dozens of people arrested in anti-racism protests in Portland, Oregon, to the antifa or anarchist movements, despite President Donald Trump’s assertions they are fueling the unrest.
A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office in Portland confirmed this in an email to Reuters on Tuesday.
“We have not alleged defendant affiliation with any specific groups or ideologies in our cases stemming from recent Portland protests,” said Kevin Sonoff, the spokesman. “Our cases focus purely on the criminal conduct alleged.”
Democrats: Violent US Riots Don’t Exist
Minnesota Attorney General and former vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Keith Ellison suggested that women who are victims of sexual assault should contact a therapist instead of calling the police on their assailant.
The Federalist reports that Ellison made the remarks during a Zoom discussion with Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), one of the prospective Democratic vice-presidential candidates.
“If you’re a woman who’s been a victim of a sexual assault, and the assailant ran away, wouldn’t you rather talk to somebody who is trained in helping you deal with what you’re dealing with, as opposed to somebody whose main training is that they know how to use a firearm? Right?” Ellison told Bass.
Ellison has previously himself been involved in a violent altercation with Amy Louise Alexander, a former girlfriend he was having an affair with. Another former girlfriend, Karen Monahan, has accused Ellison of giving her “complex PTSD” through repeated physical abuse. Monahan alleged the abuse took place while Ellison was serving as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Democrats‘ failure to condemn violence by Antifa is “unbelievable,” Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., said on Wednesday.
“Breaking the law is wrong. There is a difference between peaceful protests, which is to be protected, and with what is happening with these rioters, looters and those that are creating all this disruption,” Blackburn told “Fox & Friends.”
Blackburn addressed the Department of Justice’s task force that is investigating the “funding” and “organizational structure” behind the violence erupting during the protests.
“They say they are trained Marxists, so the DOJ is working on that. We’re looking forward to those answers,” Blackburn said.
According to Tory MP Andrew Bridgen, the UK could be flooded with hundreds of ISIS terrorists after judges ruled ISIS bride Shamima Begum could return to the country to challenge her citizenship being stripped.
Begum left the country in February 2015 to join ISIS in Syria and lived there for three years during which she became pregnant.
It was subsequently reported that Begum pointed an automatic weapon at women in Syria for “wearing brightly colored shoes”. She also stitched bombs into suicide vests to ensure they exploded when taken off.
Begum also said during interviews that seeing decapitated heads in trash cans didn’t faze her because the victims were “enemies of Islam”.
Now Begum is free to return to the UK after judges ruled she could challenge the Home Office’s decision to make her stateless.

Chancellor Carol Christ sent the following message to the campus community on Monday:
Some of you are aware of the tragic death earlier this week of third-year UC Berkeley student Seth Smith. Seth was walking near his off-campus apartment on Dwight Way on Monday evening when he was shot and fatally wounded.
Seth was 19 years old, majoring in economics, and was due to graduate in spring 2021. He came to UC Berkeley from Clarksburg, CA.
This is a senseless tragedy that affects all of us as a campus where the growth and development of our students underpins our entire mission. We offer our deepest sympathy to Seth’s family, friends, teachers, fellow students, and our community.
This news will undoubtedly raise concern about community safety. UCPD and the Berkeley Police Department (BPD) have responsibility for patrolling campus property and the city, respectively, and share a deep commitment to public safety. BPD is investigating the incident and is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of all responsible suspects. BPD asks anyone with information about Seth’s killing to call the Homicide Unit at (510) 981-5741 or the department’s 24-hour non-emergency line at (510) 981-5900.
Universities Show Disdain For Americans, Call Immigrants “Best, Brightest”
New York City’s coronavirus contact-tracing force are not asking those who test positive for COVID-19 whether they recently attended a Black Lives Matter demonstration, a city spokesperson confirmed.
“No person will be asked proactively if they attended a protest,” Avery Cohen, a spokesperson for de Blasio, told THE CITY about the directive. “If a person wants to proactively offer that information, there is an opportunity for them to do so.”
De Blasio, who announced his program last month to hire 1,000 “contact tracers,” has promised to reveal Monday how many city residents have been questioned so far.
Tracers are supposed to ask those who test positive for Covid-19 to “recall ‘contacts’ and individuals they may have exposed,” Cohen explained. Tracers also probe for any “close contacts” of the patient — anyone that has been within six feet of the infected person for at least 10 minutes.
