Arab Throws Shoe at Judge

An Arab on trial for murder threw his shoe at Jerusalem judge Zvi Segal Thursday morning. The Arab, from Jabel Mukaber, is accused of causing the deaths of three women when he crashed his car off the side of a highway. During court deliberations, the Arab suddenly took his shoe off and threw it at the judge, who was struck, and slightly injured. A quick thinking court officer managed to push the shoe off its trajectory, so only a small portion of the shoe hit the judge.

Court police nabbed the Arab, and took the shoe in for evidence.
