Woman Who Threw a Shoe at Hillary Clinton Is From Phoenix
The woman who chucked a shoe at Hillary Clinton during a speech in Las Vegas has been identified as a Phoenix resident.
Police say 36-year-old Alison Michelle Ernst was the one who threw the shoe at Clinton, although Clinton was able to dodge it.
According to the Las Vegas Sun , she didn't give any explanation for what she'd done, and wasn't even supposed to be there to begin with -- she had apparently slipped past security at the event, which was hosted by a trade organization.
Maricopa County and state court records don't reveal any criminal history on Ernst, but she does have a fairly extensive history of traffic infractions, including multiple charges of driving on a suspended license.
Her address during her last run-in with traffic cops, back in 2010, was listed in Peoria.
