Mean Mr Means

A twenty year-old man was arrested for assaulting a federal employee yesterday at the US District Court:

A Portland man has been charged for forcibly assaulting and intimidating a federal worker near the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse, U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams announced.

On August 24, Dakota Kurtis Means allegedly began following an employee around 5:30 a.m. while yelling obscenities. Court documents say he was carrying a black paintball rifle and told the employee “it’s a paintball gun now, but it’s going to be an AR later.” U.S. Marshals Service deputies arrested the 20-year-old a short time later.

Means was charged with forcibly assaulting, impeding, and intimidating a federal employee while engaged in or on account of the performance of their official duties — a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in federal prison.

He pleaded not guilty at his first court appearance on the same day as his arrest. A one-day jury trial is scheduled to begin on October 27.

This is the same guy I recorded here threatening to return with a gun after arguing with patriot protesters on Saturday:

 

As I noted before, he’s also in this photo police have released looking for persons of interest relating to the Adam Haner Beating:

Reviewing the video we see he’s definitely on the street with the group of attackers when the trouble begins. At one point he seems to be harassing Haner as he tries to pull away from the 7/11 in his truck (around 4:10):

I don’t see him toward the end–but I have a hard time watching  this video. Whatever the case, I’m sure Portland Police have already identified this guy. It will be interesting to see what happens.

  1. I appreciate your dedication and courage. Also you write well and can describe the flavor of a weird environment. It’s especially interesting that the blacks and whites are splitting.
