When the protest got out of hand, police recinded the marching permits and clamped down with a heavy police presence in the area.

Twenty-five people were arrested in Portland, Oregon Monday after May Day protests turned violent and demonstrators threw objects, Pepsi cans among them, at police.

The Huffington Post reports the pro-labor rally quickly turned into “a full-scale riot” when protestors vandalized businesses and set fires in the streets.

Before police started encouraging people to “leave the streets,” one person tried to hand a police officer a can of Pepsi as a reference to the botched Pepsi commercial featuring Kendall Jenner.
