    update tweet: fair condition, he's expecting to be going home today

    Wonder if the doctors agree with that assessment.

    Bridges said he ended up pinned between the crowd and a concrete trash can, then he fell to the ground. He said he was hurt when officers pulled him from the crowd and one officer put his knee into Bridges’ back. He said police put his wrists in zip tie cuffs, and ultimately put him in an ambulance.

    Bridges, who spoke to The Oregonian from his hospital bed, said he was not arrested.

    Bridges said he has back fractures from a 2003 competitive cheerleading accident.

    Portland police Sgt. Pete Simpson said it appears Bridges was injured in a fall as the park was cleared, and that the incident is under review. source
