A few minutes ago, at the Justice Center in downtown Portland, Johnny Eschweiler plead not guilty to all charges brought against him in last Friday’s road rage incident.

Eschweiler was led into the courtroom in handcuffs and a blue jumpsuit. With disheveled hair and a somewhat confused-looking countenance, he stood silently while his case was processed.

He told the clerk he pleads not guilty to all charges and that he will seek a state-appointed lawyer.

Judge Randall Weisberg presided over the brief hearing and he referred to the charges as “pretty serious”.

Also present at the arraignment was a KATU KGW-TV news crew and Jasper Jon Barber, a friend of Ben Ramsdell (one of the victims). Barber was interviewed by the TV crew after the proceedings.
