Las Vegas: A woman was taken into custody after throwing what she described as a shoe at Hillary Clinton during a Las Vegas speech.


The incident happened moments after Clinton took the stage Thursday at an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting at the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino.

Clinton ducked but did not appear to be hit by the object, and then joked about the incident.

Security ushered out a woman who said she threw a shoe but didn't identify herself to reporters or explain the action.

Authorities said the woman would be arrested.

If it was a shoe, this isn't the first time a major U.S. politician has had footwear thrown their way. George W. Bush had a pair thrown at him during a visit to Iraq in December 2008.
