A heavily armed Oregon man smashed the window of a parked patrol car in broad daylight Sunday and pepper-sprayed an officer who was doing paperwork inside, authorities said. The cop was sitting in the vehicle around 9:40 a.m. when 41-year-old John Russell broke the back window, deployed his pepper spray and ran to his own car in a random and disturbing attack in Portland, according to police.
