OR Man Among 31 Arrested At CDA Pride Event

(Portland, OR) -- An Oregon man is among the 31 white nationalists arrested for allegedly planning to riot at an LGBTQ+ Pride event in northern Idaho over the weekend. The Kootenai County Sheriff's Office says 32-year-old Lawrence Alexander Norman of Prospect was arrested near the Pride in the Park event in Coeur d'Alene on Saturday. All 31 suspects are members of the white supremacist neo-Nazi group Patriot Front. Police say the suspects were wearing riot gear including armor and masks and were carrying shields when officers stopped the U-Haul truck they were traveling in. Police responded after a concerned citizen called 911 to report the men piling into the U-Haul looking "like a little army" in the parking lot of a local hotel. Arraignment is scheduled today.
