A man has been arrested on charges that he threw tomatoes at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump during a campaign stop at the University of Iowa.
Hayley Bruce, a University of Iowa spokeswoman, says 28-year-old Andrew Joseph Alemao was charged Tuesday with disorderly conduct after officers say they saw him throwing two tomatoes toward Trump during a speech. It wasn’t clear whether the tomatoes hit anyone.
Secret Service and University of Iowa police officers arrested Alemao, and he was booked into the Johnson County Jail.
Court records don’t indicate whether Alemao has an attorney who could speak on his behalf.

Johnson County Jail officials say Alemao was released Wednesday morning without bond.
