Woman Who Threw Shoe At Hillary Clinton Faces Federal Charges


Federal authorities this weekend filed a federal complaint against Alison Michelle Ernst, the woman who threw a shoe at Hillary Clinton during a speech, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.

Ernst was charged with trespassing and violence against a person in a restricted building, both of which are misdemeanors, according to the complaint filed by the U.S. Secret Service.

She was charged by the Las Vegas police on Friday for a misdemeanor and later released from jail.

According to the complaint filed by the Secret Service agent Edward Autelli, Ernst threw a soccer shoe and papers at Clinton in a restricted area. Ernst did not have a ticket for the area, but managed to get through anyway.

Autelli said that agents could not stop Ernst before she threw the shoe, which nearly hit Clinton’s head.
