Jeremy_paul_olson_20091207191447_320_240 Update 3: Jeremy Paul Olsen h/t PatR2012 on Twitter.

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (FOX 9) – A man was arrested for throwing tomatoes at Sarah Palin during her book signing on Monday at the Mall of America.

Jeremy Olson, 33, allegedly threw two tomatoes from the second balcony, however did not come close to hitting Palin.

Update 2: Well, we know there were some Democrat activists present, not that these folks are linked to the incident. What are the chances some Democrat activist was? I'd think pretty good.

Josh Preston, a 19 year old political science major, said he was wearing a Wellstone T-shirt under his garb, a nod to the Democrat he is and the community organizer he hopes to be. But he and the other University of Minnesota/Morris students who pulled an all-nighter to win their place in line wanted to see the woman whose prominence has made history.

Update: A news video report from the event. Tomato throwing incident not covered in that.

I always suspected Progressives threw like sissies. Here's the proof. Aiming at Sarah Palin, not only missing completely, but catching a Cop square in the face?? Priceless! Maybe he should have stuck to throwing something more his speed, like ACORNs, instead! heh!

A man was arrested for allegedly throwing two tomatoes at Sarah Palin from the second floor balcony during a book signing event at the Mall of America in Minnesota, MyFoxTwinCities.com. reported.

Neither tomato came close hitting the former 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, but did hit a police officer in the face, the station reported.

The unidentified man may face charges for assaulting a police officer, according to the station.

Die-hard supporters treated the event like another Black Friday, lining up outside in freezing weather before the mall doors opened at 5 a.m.

Emily Calhoon, a high school junior from Minnetonka, took the day off school with a group of fellow students and arrived at 4:45 a.m. Calhoon, 16, said she likes Palin's conservatism.

"She's a lot more relatable than the stereotypical old rich white male," said Calhoon as she waited in line, clutching a copy of Palin's memoir of her life and political career, "Going Rogue."

The former Alaska governor  arrived just before noon

    They’re just imitating President Pantywaist. Remember the All-Star Game? He threw like a girlie man. Not even a girl, since I’ve seen some girls throw better than that sissymarie.

  2. ThomasD says:

    Minnesota? I’m betting the charges get reduced/dropped.
    Although, intent does follow the tomato…

  3. HeatherRadish says:

    Was anyone ever charged for trying to kill people attending the 2008 GOP convention with sandbags or trying to maim them with bleach?

  4. Hater throws tomatoes at Sarah Palin, hits cop instead

    Whoops (via Dan Riehl):

    Jeremy Olson, 33, allegedly threw two tomatoes from the second balcony, however…

    O blame Martha and the DNC saying Palin is “dangerous has incited these unhinged loons.

  6. jpc says:

    Guy looks like your typical loser that shows up on a “To Catch A Predator” episode. You know, the guy who thinks that hot-looking 14-year old girl really wants to do him, and she asks him to show up with a Happy Meal & condoms. Maybe the “set-up” was at the Mall of America and he was supposed to bring a tomato for her, then when he saw the crowd, his noodle went limp so he decided to bail out and tossed the tomato.

    If I looked like that I wouldn’t want to draw attention to myself.

  8. Ratskeller says:

    Sheesh, the guy’s 33 years old–not a crazy teen ager! I Soooo hope that cop who got splattered is a Republican without a sense of humor and makes sure charges are pressed.

    ooops…
    another “angry white male”. we were told to watch out for these guys.
    it would be a rarity if his actions of contempt for palin wasn’t balanced by a love of the messiah. the cult remains.

  10. Malkin says:

    AAAH!! Why didn’t they throw shoes? That would be hilarious.

  11. I’m sure George Soros will pay this inbred meth-head pedophile douchebag’s legal bills.
    It would be nice if somebody in the crowd would curb-stomp one of these pieces of sh!t occasionally.

  12. HatlessHessian says:

    Why is it all the liberal activists look like they just crawled out from under a rock right out of the cro-magnon? Is there something particularly stressful with the usual liberal college drop-out lifestyle that causes this rage? Sort of a drug-induced, self-loathing college dropout PTSD?

  13. DaveinPhoenix says:

    I’d pay every dollar I have to be allowed an hour in a locked room with that pussy tomato throwing communist waste of sperm.

  14. SinLater says:

    Priceless…….tomato in a cops face? Plain stupid.
    Dan………..Shaley sends her love…….

  15. Meadow says:

    The guy looks like the product of FAS.
    I think his eyebrows and nose got in the way of his vision.
    Any bets on prior police record?

  16. Tea Bags says:

    I didn’t say a tomato is a dirty bomb or that I fell for her martyr routine. I’m saying that a tomato dropped on someone’s face from two stories up could put out an eye. A smooshy tomato thrown from a chair in the first row: probably not so bad. But we should stick with tradition, there’s nothing wrong with the tried-and-true cream pie. It makes a better statement.

    What the hell are you talking about or trying to say?

    Though Liberals may steal, lie and cheat they leave the thuggery to union heads.
    This guy has RONPAUL!!!! mobster anarchist written all over him.

  19. Dave C says:

    He looks like noted white supremacist Henry Rollins (Well, he plays one so well on TV, some of that can’t be acting).

  20. Fred Beloit says:

    This mug can’t be the fine gentleman who demonstrated his free man’s decision about Palin so valorously with a tomato could it? I think they must have gotten the photo of this cowardly looking mutt mixed up with that brave free speech guy.

  21. Fred Beloit says:

    One more comment if I may. I recognize the eyebrows on this darb. They could only have been fashioned by Mr. Annette in his/her shop at the Mall.

  22. Josh says:

    Looks like the typical pea-brained liberal… What’s he want to be? An Abortion Doctor? That’s a good solid job for folks like him.

  23. Josh says:

    Dave C – Henry Rollins isn’t a white supremacist. You have zero brains. Rollins is atleast 1000X smarter than you will ever wish you could be.

  24. Josh,
    notice the part where Dave C said he plays one on TV. Sons of Anarchy to be more specific. And he’s damn good at it.

  25. Democrats are skum says:

  32. Exile says:

    At least when Adolf Judas Obama jams commie care down the public’s throat, this douche can get his crossed eyes fixed. Of course, they’ll probably just poke one eye out. It’s win win Baby!
