Proud Boys member Alan Swinney arrested by Portland cops on multiple assault and weapons charges
PROUD Boys member Alan Swinney was arrested by Portland police on multiple assault and weapons charges on Wednesday morning.

The charges stem from an August 15 protest in the city where Swinney, 50, allegedly fired a paintball gun at another person. The indictment alleges that the shot caused physical harm.
Swinney is also reportedly accused of unlawfully using mace or a similar substance on someone and assaulting other individuals on the same day.
Swinney was also captured on video at a pro-Trump rally on August 22 pointing a revolver into a crowd of counter-protesters, according to multiple reports.
On Tuesday afternoon, the day before he was arrested, Swinney took to Twitter to ask for donations to help him fight the charges.5Proud Boys face off with Black Lives Matter protesters in Portland on August 15Credit: Getty Images - Getty 5Trump told the Proud Boys to 'stand back and stand by' during the first presidential debateCredit: Getty Images - Getty
"Help me fight these people," he wrote. "Every retweet makes a terrorist lose his or her mind."
Swinney's arrest comes the morning after President Trump refused to condemn white supremacist groups during the first presidential debate, even telling the Proud Boys to "stand by."
This is not the first legal trouble related to pro-Trump rallies that Swinney has found himself in.
In September, he was sued for $250,000 by a woman who alleged he shot her in the chest with a paintball gun during the August 22 rally.
His bail for the current charges is set at more than half a million dollars.

They have appeared at many extremist gatherings with other alt-right groups, but the group denies any connection to the "racist alt-right."
They instead insist that they are "a fraternal group spreading an anti-political correctness" and "anti-white guilt" agenda.
The group was created by Gavin McInnes, the co-founder of VICE Media, but is currently led by Enrique Tarrio.
