At flag-waving rally in Portland, @TaraLaRosa says she had to take anti-Trump protester to the ground after the woman allegedly attacked another woman. The group detained the self-described professor until police came. LaRosa says the woman bit her chest, causing an open wound.

LaRosa explained her account on Twitter:

Toward the end of our day, a woman came up & started berating us. She didn’t get a reaction from me so she moved on & attacked another women in our group. I had to break up a fight & put her down till the cops came. I had just started live streaming.


Victoria Taft tweeted:

Dear @TaraLaRosa,

Thank you.
