Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin felt the love Monday during an appearance at the Mall of America, in the Minneapolis suburb of Bloomington, when a man hurled a tomato from the second level balcony at her.
Police arrested 33-year-old Jeremy Paul Olson from St. Paul, but they think he also goes by the name Jeremiah Wobbe. Wobbe was booked on assault with a salad vegetable and disorderly conduct charges.
Officers said when they arrested him, they found two more tomatoes he’d been carrying. What a shame he didn’t get a chance to lob them at Palin too.
Palin was at the mall signing copies of her heavily ghostwriten book, “Going Rogue.”
