A man faces charges for allegedly throwing tomatoes during a Sarah Palin book signing at the Mall of America on Monday.
According to local channel FOX 9, Jeremy Olson, 33, allegedly threw two tomatoes from a second-story balcony, aimed at the former vice presidential candidate. The local CBS station, WCCO, said Olson hit a police officer instead.
The red, juicy projectiles missed Palin, who was in the massive Bloomington, Minn., mall to sign copies of her new book, “Going Rogue.”
Olson was arrested on suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct, the TV station reported.
