A Los Angeles man has been accused of disturbing the Iowa City Pride Parade on June 16.

Michael Oren, 58, was charged June 16 with interference with official acts and disorderly conduct.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, police were called to College Green Park because Oren was allegedly yelling obscenities and disturbing the parade. He was reportedly given a warning for the incident.

Oren followed the group to the Pedestrian Mall, where he began yelling again and jumped on the stage and disrupted the musicians. According to the complaint, he yelled very loudly and continued to resist efforts to get into the squad car once he was arrested.

Disorderly conduct is a serious misdemeanor, as is interference with official.
