During a book signing at the Mall of America in Minnesota on Monday, a man threw tomatoes at Sarah Palin! But none of them hit her and hey, at least it wasn’t a shoe!

Police said the tomato hit the stage about 10 feet away from Sarah and hit two of their officers instead.

Witnesses on the second level balcony, where the tomato was thrown from, helped police apprehend the man accused of throwing the tomato.

The man was identified as 33-year-old Jeremy Paul Olson from St. Paul, but police believe goes by the name Jeremiah Wobbe.

He was arrested and booked on assault and disorderly conduct charges, police said. They also said he had two more tomatoes on him!

Sarah was at the mall signing copies of her book, Going Rogue, for four hours. She didn’t address the crowd, but did speak individually to the owners of the books she signed.
