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.
‘Is that somebody throwing something at me?’ Clinton asked, according to the Review-Journal. ‘Is that part of Cirque du Soleil?’
Security ushered out a woman who said she threw a shoe but didn’t identify herself to reporters or explain the action.
Many in the audience of more than 1,000 people in a large ballroom laughed and applauded as Clinton resumed her speech.
