Tre Arrow, enviro-nut
Portland police today arrested Tre Arrow on an allegation of domestic-violence related fourth-degree assault.
An officer arrested Arrow, 38, at 9:01 a.m. in the 5100 block of Northeast 28th Avenue.
He was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center an hour later and is being held on $5,000 bail.
Arrow is on the ballot as a candidate for Portland mayor. He became publicly known as the man who sat on a 9-inch window ledge for 11 days at the U.S. Forest Service's Portland headquarters in 2000.
Arrow last month filed a prospective nominating petition with Portland's elections office. The one-time congressional candidate and environmental activist who turned into an FBI most-wanted fugitive gathered at least 100 valid signatures to be on the Portland ballot.
Arrow, who pleaded guilty in 2008 to two counts of arson and served time in prison, joins 19 other mayoral candidates in the May primary.
Arrow, who participated in the Occupy Portland protests, drew the attention of Portland firefighters earlier this year when he climbed a tree to reportedly deliver messages about nature.
City code allows residents with criminal records to run for office.
“When it comes to Tre Arrow the truth is stranger than fiction, he may be an improvement over the current mayor though. LOL!”
You homophobe! (just kidding) I can’t believe Adams isn’t conducting city business from inside his cell at the Multnomah County Detention Center. Portland is such a dysfunctional city.
No surprise here. Tre is all about Tre.
God I’m glad I left that state.
LOL! I didn’t get into that but some of the comments after the article are great.
Two counts of Arson in 08 and he’s out 4 years later?
Wasn’t there a song back in the 70s
Me and Tre Arrow
Yep, he was sentenced to 78 months in a federal slammer and only served about a year then released to a halfway house. Don’t know how he pulled that off being fed criminals serve 85% to 90% of their sentence.
No kidding, Jim Trafficant did his whole 7 years and he didn’t burn anything down or destroy anything. All he did was do what democrats do while pissing them off.
Thanks for the info. I remember now that he spent some time in a Canadian jail but didn’t follow the case after they brought him back.
Like you say, the little worm is a folk hero to the enviro-nazis around Portland and the I-5 corridor and there’s way too many of them.
Tre Arrow, whose legal name is Michael Scarpitti, is on the ballot as a candidate for Portland mayor.
In 2008, he was convicted of targeting an Oregon logging company with a firebomb...served prison time for setting fire to cement and logging trucks. He spent nearly 7 years in prison for that arson.
Portland allows residents with criminal records to run for office.
For those of you who remember “FReeper” Ferret, he was a friend of Tre.
Was Ferret the mouth piece for ELF in Eugene Ore?
One Flash from the past I could do with out...
Thanks...I liked post #3, Drama Queen.
I liked Ferret, he never tried to hide who he was. He always carried on a good conversation via freepmail. I think he registered under another name too.
Don't know, but IIRC he was a tree-sitter in some park there. The neighbors wanted to cut them to improve the view.
He's posting as "Ferret Annica" over at DU (the link requires a membership (for those who have sufficient hand soap available)).
Several. From what I can tell, he eventually quit. See the post above.
Look at the right side of his face and the way it droops. Something definitely wrong with this guy.
