Shoe Thrown at Hillary Clinton During Las Vegas Speech

A woman was taken into federal custody on Thursday after throwing a shoe at former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as she began a Las Vegas convention keynote speech.

According to The Associated Press (AP), the incident happened moments after Clinton took the stage before an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting at the Mandalay Bay resort. Clinton ducked, and she did not appear to be hit by the object.
