PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Disorderly conduct charges have been filed against two people accused of blocking the driveway to the Portland Police Bureau’s East Precinct.

Sgt. Pete Simpson says 51-year-old Robert West and 38-year-old Sarabeth Long were initially joined by others Tuesday night. They were filming officers they entered the garage for a shift change.

Officers said they were free to film, but couldn’t block access. Simpson says most of the group moved, but West and Long didn’t follow orders until an arrest was imminent. They left in a vehicle and were detained not too far away.

The arrests came two days after a man who has spent months watching the East Precinct was arrested after worried officers found an arsenal of weapons and ammunition in his vehicle.
