KPTV reports an officer responded to the ATM early Sunday and confronted him in a parking lot.
Police say he sprayed pepper spray and ran before he was chased down.
The 32-year-old man was wearing two ballistic vests and had ballistic panels sewn into undergarments covering his arms, legs, back and crotch.
He was armed with a knife and had a stun gun and acetylene torch in a backpack. Mark Fischer was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on multiple charges including being a felon in possession of body armor.
Mark, my advice when you get out of prison is to sell ballistic undergarments. Seriously, I think you’d do quite well with that as a legit business. That would be a great way to turn your life in a good direction.
