Arizona woman throws shoe at Hillary Clinton during speech

LAS VEGAS — Authorities say a Phoenix woman accused of throwing a shoe at
Hillary Rodham Clinton during a Las Vegas speech has been freed after being
given a misdemeanor disorderly conduct summons.

Prosecutors said Friday that 36-year-old Alison Michelle Ernst was freed by Las
Vegas police after being questioned by U.S. Secret Service agents in the
Thursday incident at the Mandalay Bay resort.

As Ernst was taken into custody, she said she threw a shoe and dropped some
papers. She didn’t say why.

Ernst’s jail booking photo shows she wore blonde wig at the time.

Ernst couldn’t immediately be reached Friday. Itt wasn’t clear if she had a
lawyer.

Clinton wasn’t struck by the shoe. She joked about the incident and continued
with her talk to the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries.
