Man Arrested For Throwing M&Ms at Officer

DES MOINES (AP) - A 20-year-old Des Moines man is charged with assaulting a police officer - with candy.

Officials say Sean McGuire, a student at Drake University, was arrested early Sunday at a convenience store. He allegedly threw several M&M's at a Des Moines police officer, who was investigating a hit-and-run accident involving an intoxicated man.

Police reports say Drake security guards on the scene noticed M&M candies falling on the ground around the officer. When the officer turned around one of the candies hit his shoulder.

McGuire claimed he threw the candy because he was "sticking up for his friend," who apparently was the man suspected in the accident.

What a moron.

I guess this'll give him the chance to keep sticking up for his friend in lockup.

I always carry when I leave the house. As I told my family, "I tick off a lot of people." I carry in case they confront me but I also want to be able to take action in a critical situation - I'm going to hate myself if I see a someone being killed in front of me and I can't do anything about it.
