Portland police officers booked a man into jail on assault charges Saturday morning after a drinking session near the freeway turned violent.

Officers arrested 55-year-old Michael Oswald on three counts of second-degree assault around 10:15 a.m. Saturday.

Oswald and three other men were sitting and drinking near Interstate 5 at Northeast Second Avenue and Clackamas Street. An argument broke out, and Oswald started beating the other men with a pipe.

Officers found Oswald a couple blocks away, trying to scale a fence near the Oregon State Hospital.

Police arrested Oswald and took him to jail.

The three victims' injuries were described as non-life-threatening.
