Protester charged over pie attack
An anti-war protester who hit US Senator Carl Levin in the face with an apple pie has been charged with assault.
An indictment filed charges against Ahlam Mohsen of Coldwater with two counts of assault against the Michigan Democrat while he was meeting with constituents in August in Big Rapids.
Her friend Max Kantar of Big Rapids was also charged.
US Attorney Don Davis in Grand Rapids said elected leaders should be able to listen to constituents without being attacked.
Messages seeking comment were left for Mohsen and Kantar, who are both 23.
Mohsen's father, Mohamed Mohsen, said she was unaware of the indictment.
Levin spokeswoman Tara Andringa said he was not immediately available for comment. At the time of the incident, the senator said his critics were hurting their cause.
