Marquise Love, 26, has been sentenced to 20 months in prison after he pled guilty to assaulting a motorist during riots in Portland over the summer. 

A viral video showed Love kicking Adam Haner in the head while the latter was on the ground during a riot in August, the New York Post reports. Haner, who said he stopped at the protests to help a transgender woman who was also being assaulted, was knocked unconscious by the attack, per the Post.

Love pled guilty to third-degree assault and felony riot, according to local reports. The video shows Love kicking Haner unprovoked after a group of rioters were previously attacking Haner, whose truck had crashed into a light pole. Love will also be subject to 36 months of probation and must take part in an alcohol-abuse evaluation program, the Post reports.

Portland was subjected to mass protests and rioting over the summer following the police killing of George Floyd in Minnesota. A local official there recently had his house vandalized for not voting to cut police funding.

More unrest emerged in the city following the presumptive victory of Joe Biden in last week’s Presidential election.
