Portland police officer indicted on assault charge stemming from use of baton during protest

A Multnomah County grand jury returned an indictment Tuesday against a Portland police officer, accusing him of striking a protester in the head with a baton last summer.

It marks the first time a Portland police officer has faced prosecution stemming from striking or firing at someone during a protest and only the second time in county history a police officer has been indicted for such physical use of force on duty.

The indictment charges Corey A. Budworth, who joined the Police Bureau six years ago, with fourth-degree assault, a misdemeanor.

It accuses him of “unlawfully, knowingly and recklessly causing physical injury” to Teri Jacobs on Aug. 18. Jacobs alleges Budworth “bashed her in the face” with his baton after he had already knocked her to the ground, according to court records.
