Ass-Hat Jailed For Throwing Tomatoes at Palin

Fox 9 in Bloomington, MN is reporting that man was arrested for throwing tomatoes at Sarah Palin during her book signing on Monday at the Mall of America.

Jeremy Olson, 33, allegedly threw two tomatoes from the second balcony, however did not come close to hitting Palin.

Bloomington Police report that Bloomington Commander Mark Stehlik was struck in the face with one of the tomatoes and may face charges for assaulting a police officer. Olson was booked at the Bloomington jail. He was arrested for suspicion of assault and disorderly conduct.

More than 1,000 people turned out at the Mall of America Rotunda on Monday for Sarah Palin's "Going Rogue" book signing.

Palin started signing books at noon for those brave enough to wait in a long line that started around 5 a.m.

Those hoping to get their copy of "Going Rogue" signed on Monday must come prepared. According to MOA organizers, you must have a mall-issued wristband, which requires a copy of the book purchased from Barnes and Noble or a Barnes and Noble receipt proving your purchase. "Going Rogue" sold more than 700,000 copies in its first week, outpacing President Barack Obama's 2006 book "The Audacity of Hope," which sold fewer than 100,000 first-week copies and Hilary Clinton's 2003 book "Living History," which sold roughly 600,000 copies. Palin recently passed the 1,000,000 book mark and has sat atop the New York Times bestseller list for two weeks.

they could and should charge him for the assault, it's called transferred intent. strange how there was nothing about this incident in/on the MSM. BDS has morphed into PDS.

the left cannot stand that this woman speaks her mind, doesn't get tangled in lies, doesn't play "the game" oh, and she's beautiful, to boot.
they especially hate that the americans who respect her FAR outnumber those you made mention.
it's evident not only in the tomato frustration, but in the fringe left commentary, as well.

What is it with these libtards being infatuated with throwing food at Republicans?

Palin speaks her mind. She tells the truth and doesn't buy into the libs political correctness garbage. She speaks out against the libs, is tough as nails, and speaks for the heart of America and that's why the liberals hate her.
