Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler pepper-sprayed a man who accosted him after he dined at a local pub on Sunday night, according to reports. Wheeler was with former Portland mayor Sam Adams when a man confronted them outside McMenamins Hillsdale Brewery & Public House, according to a police report obtained by The Oregonian. The man reportedly complained that Wheeler and Adams were not wearing face masks while dining.
