A Texas man has been arrested and charged for assaulting a member of the U.S. Marshals Service during a riotous protest over the weekend, attacking the federal law enforcement agent with a hammer as he was trying to break into a federal courthouse ANTIFA-linked militants have been attacking with regularity over several weeks of riots.
Jacob M. Gaines, 23, is being charged with one count of assault against a federal officer. Prosecutors are alleging that Gaines was using a construction hammer during an attempt to break through a barricade protecting the Hatfield Federal Courthouse from a mob of ANTIFA street militants when he was confronted by a U.S. Marshall. Gaines began striking the Marshal with his hammer, hitting the man three times before being subdued and arrested.
Gaines, who is being charged federally, appeared before a judge, and was released without bail, curiously. The indictment against the Texas man was unsealed Monday. The man, a Texas native who is purportedly homeless in Portland, struck the marshal’s deputy in the upper back, lower neck, and in the shoulder before other federal law enforcement agents were able to take him down. The marshal was reportedly uninjured.
Federal Officers reporting a subject was breaking down a door of the Federal Courthouse with a hammer creating a hole in the door. Officers came out and one was deliberately struck in the head and shoulder with the hammer. An arrest was made. Pepper spray and CS gas deployed.

ANTIFA continues to riot on a nightly basis in the progressive utopia, routinely attacking the federal courthouse and terrorizing the city’s downtown small businesses. City officials have figuratively raised a white flag, handing a pass to the criminals and leaving the preservation of the rule of law to federal law enforcement agents unwilling to let ANTIFA overthrow the government in the city.
18 Year Old Gabriel Agard-Berryhill Arrested in Bombing of Portland Courthouse
ANTIFA boy is in deep trouble now.
The Department of Justice announced that 18-year old Gabriel Agard-Berryhill has been charged with arson against the Hatfield Federal Courthouse in Portland on Friday. Agard-Berryhill is alleged to have thrown an incendiary device at the Portland courthouse earlier this week that exploded in a manner comparable to a bomb.

“No legitimate protest message is advanced by throwing a large explosive device against a government building. Mr. Agard-Berryhill’s actions could have gravely injured law enforcement officers positioned near the courthouse, other protesters standing nearby, or himself,” said U.S. Attorney Billy J. Williams. “I applaud the ATF agents and U.S. Marshals Service deputies who worked quickly to identify Mr. Agard-Berryhill before he had an opportunity to hurt others.”
Agard-Berryhill was initially identified on social media through a review post his own grandmother had posted on a review website, reviewing a protective vest she said she had purchased for her grandson to use in the protest event. The Department of Justice charging announcement refers to the review, stating that the U.S. Marshals used it to positively identify the young man for arrest.
“The violent opportunists engaged in dangerous acts of violence, such as arson, need to realize there will be grave consequences,” said Russel Burger, U.S. Marshal for the District of Oregon. “Serious crimes of this nature go beyond mere property damage to the courthouse and endanger people’s lives.”
Agard-Berryhill is facing a maximum sentence of up to 20 years on the arson charge. He’s lucky he’s not facing more charges, considering the devices he used against the courthouse exploded in a fashion comparable to a bomb that could’ve easily killed someone.
