Wheeler and Adams had just finished dinner at the McMenamins Hillsdale Brewery & Public House on Southwest Sunset Boulevard around 8 p.m. when a man both described as middle-aged accused the current mayor of dining without a mask, according to a Portland Police Bureau report released Monday afternoon.

Wheeler said he told the person who accosted him and Adams that the pair had eaten in a tented area of the pub, which does not require face coverings under current coronavirus restrictions, the report said.

The man then followed Wheeler closely as he walked to his car, the mayor told police.
