[Ed. – Come on. It’s a low-level crime under Nevada law, at most.]
A Phoenix woman accused of throwing a shoe at Hillary Rodham Clinton during a speech in Las Vegas remains in federal custody after pleading not guilty to two criminal charges.
Alison Ernst, 36, entered the pleas to misdemeanor counts of trespassing and violence against a person during her arraignment late Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Cam Ferenbach then granted the government’s request to keep Ernst in federal custody, saying she was a flight risk and danger to the community. …
Ferenbach raised concerns about Ernst’s residency status and mental health condition, Natalie Collins, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s office in Nevada, told The Associated Press.
