Man Throws Tomatoes At Palin Book Signing

Hundreds of people attended former Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin's book signing at The Mall of America in Minnesota.

All was well until police say a local man allegedly threw two tomatoes at Palin while she signed copies of her book 'Going Rogue.' Bystanders pointed the suspect out to a nearby officer and police arrested Jeremy Paul Olson at the scene.

Police say the first tomato landed about '10 feet wide left' of Palin and the second hit an officer.

Olson was booked at the Bloomington Police Department on a gross misdemeanor charge of 4th degree assault on a police officer and a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.
