Hilary Clinton Shoe-Thrower Detained By Feds

The woman accused of throwing a shoe at Hilary Clinton has been subsequently detained by federal authorities with two misdemeanor counts.

Alison Michelle Ernst was charged with two misdemeanor counts — trespassing on a restricted building or grounds and violence against a person in a restricted building or grounds, according to a copy of the complaint filed by the U.S. Secret Service.

Agents were seeking to arrest Ernst and there was no word Monday on when she would be in federal court to enter a plea to the charges.

Ernst, 36, of Phoenix, was charged by Las Vegas police on Friday with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and later released.

The  shoe-throwing was done at a metal recycling conference at Mandalay Bay and Ernst apparently threw the black and orange Puma cleat from a distance of 60 feet.
