Authorities in Washington have arrested two people in connection with the union takeover of a Longview grain terminal, including a worker caught on video in a vulgarity-laced tirade outside the union hall.
The Cowlitz County Sheriff's office says 45-year-old Ronal Patrick Stavas, of Kelso, is accused of assaulting a guard and breaking into the EGT terminal on Thursday. He was arrested for first-degree burglary, second-degree assault, intimidating a witness and sabotage. Bail was set at $50,000.
Witnesses identified Stavas on the KGW-TV video.
Authorities also arrested 39-year-old Shelly Ann Porter, of Longview, for trespassing when she blocked a train. She was booked and released.

[Given O's DoJ, it remains to be seen.]
Not from the top of the gene pool.
Let the wrist-slapping and whitewashing begin!
(Hope to be proven wrong, of course.)
That lying dog!! He said, on tape, his name was “F-— U. C—ksucker”. I heard him with my own ears.
That might or might not be the same guy. Age sure seems roughly correct (45). But the arrest is for conduct on the day or two prior to the confrontation with reporters in the union’s parking lot.
If anyone finds out for sure, please update the thread?
In that case, he should be arrested for impersonating the President Of The United States.
He must have had union parents.
What was the money damage done to the terminal?
If both at the highest levels, and at the lowest (union thugs) serious crimes are committed with impunity, how can our so-called "leaders" complain of disrespect for the "rule of law?"
May they give him years and years to contemplate his actions. And somehow, I doubt that he is going to get a sympathetic press.
I have reason to hope that we will be again, in a couple years. The "Justice" Department will need to be scrubbed first, though.
This wasn’t a protest. Were they chanting “Down with glass!” when they were breaking windows? Or “We hate brake lines!” when they were cutting the lines on the train. And by the way, there’s a good idea for you. Let’s send trains off with no breaks. What a bunch of mindless thugs.
Mid-level clerk at Chinese embassy: “Mistah Obama, the ambassador has requested I convey to you the grave concern Chairman Hu has about criminal disruptions at your port facilities.”
Obama “Uh, yes sir! “
“Two arrests out of several hundred thugs?”
The rest of them hid inside the union hall while this guy was out making himself famous on youtube.
Well that depends on who you are & who is in power . If your party is in power then the rule of law ain’t much of a worry if your party ain’t in power the rule of law is a weapon used to keep you silent .
Designated fall guys.
His name is Ronald Patrick Stavas, he was born on July 31 1966. Bail set at $50,000.
He also has been a defendant in three other criminal cases since 1998. He is obviously an A-1 jerk.
Dang! Beat me to it.
“...cutting the lines on the train. And by the way, theres a good idea for you. Lets send trains off with no breaks. “
A minor point: If you cut the brake lines on a train the brakes won’t release. The car won’t move.
I’m sure the guy in the video is a fine, upstanding church going boy scout leader.
