Stay classy, liberal wing. A man was arrested at the Mall of America in Minneapolis for throwing a few tomatoes at Sarah Palin during a book signing. Unfortunately for the Henry Rollins look-a-like, his aim was off and he instead hit a couple of cops and is now looking at assault of an officer charges. As you’d imagine from last year’s shoe-tossing incident in Iraq – in liberal circles, Mr. Tomatohead is being hailed a hero. The report from WCCO in Minnesota and a link to some liberal sites celebrating the act after the jump…
Bloomington Police say a man threw a tomato at former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin during her Monday appearance at the Mall of America, but didn’t hit her.
Officers say two of their own were hit by tomato fragments instead, after the tomato hit the stage about 10 feet from Palin. People on the second level balcony, where the tomato was thrown from, helped police apprehend the man accused of throwing it.
Police identified him as 33-year-old Jeremy Paul Olson from St. Paul, but they think he also goes by the name Jeremiah Wobbe. Police said he was arrested and booked on assault and disorderly conduct charges. Officers added that when they arrested him, they found two more tomatoes he’d been carrying.
