(Portland, OR)  --  An active-duty Marine could be facing hate-crime charges, after he was accused of attacking an employee in an Iraqi restaurant in Northeast Portland.  Police say Sergeant Major Damian T. Rodriguez was one of two men who uttered racial slurs in the restaurant Friday evening, and is accused of picking up a chair and assaulting a server.  KGW-TV reports Rodriguez was initially accused of harassment and second-degree disorderly conduct and intimidation, but a hate-crime charge could be added.  Rodriguez has reportedly been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.
