Sen. Carl Levin Gets a Pie Thrown at Him

A woman accused of hitting Democratic Sen. Carl Levin in the face with an apple pie during the Armed Services Committee chairman's constituent meeting in northern Michigan is due in court.

Twenty-two-year-old Ahlam M. Mohsen of Coldwater will be arraigned Tuesday. She is being held without bond after being arrested Monday on a felony charge of stalking, and misdemeanor counts of assault and disorderly conduct.

Levin took a question near the end of Monday's meeting in Big Rapids, 150 miles northwest of Detroit, from a man who read a long statement. A woman then hit Levin with a pie.

Mohsen told the Big Rapids Pioneer she hoped "to send a message that liberals and Democrats are just as implicated in the violence (of war) as the Republicans."

She has no listed telephone number in Coldwater.
