Wolf-Killer Targeted at Mall: Give That Man the Congressional Medal of Honor

Man Throws Tomatoes at Palin at MOA

Hundreds Gather at MOA for Palin

Bloomington police arrested a man for throwing two tomatoes at Sarah Palin at Mall of America Monday afternoon.

Jeremy Paul Olson, 33, was arrested for fourth degree assault and disorderly conduct.

Palin was never aware of the incident.

The former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee was at the mall to sign copies of her book 'Going Rogue.' Hundreds showed for a chance to get an autograph.

Bloomington police said Olson tossed the tomatoes from the second level of the rotunda.

The tomatoes missed Palin by about ten feet. They bounced off the stage and hit two Bloomington police officers who were providing security.

Bystanders pointed out the suspect to police.
