PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A man seen as a fixture in Oregon's white nationalist movement was hospitalized after an altercation with anti-fascist activists in Corvallis.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Corvallis police on Tuesday said 65-year-old Jimmy Marr of Springfield suffered from a "medical event" during the Monday incident.

Marr is known for driving a pickup truck around the state with racist and anti-Semitic messages emblazoned on the sides.

Police say a fight involving Marr and five other people erupted in downtown Corvallis around 4 p.m.

Corvallis police Lt. Dan Duncan said four people were jailed on suspicion of disorderly conduct and later released. Duncan says he doesn't know what prompted the fight.

In an interview with the newspaper last year, Marr advocated for the extermination of Jewish people.

His condition was unknown, and he did not respond to calls or an email.
