Man Arrested for Hitting Sen. Ted Cruz With a Beer Can at Houston Astros’ World Series Parade (VIDEOS)

A man has been arrested for allegedly hitting Sen. Ted Cruz with a beer can during the Astros’ World Series parade in Houston, Texas.

The suspect has only been identified as a 33-year-old male.

“A male, 33, threw a beer can at U.S. Senator Ted Cruz as the Senator was on a float in the 2400 block of Smith St. The beer can struck the Senator in the chest/neck area. The Senator did not require medical attention,” the Houston Police Department said in a tweet.

The department added, “Nearby HPD officers arrested the male without further incident. He was taken to jail and faces assault charges. We will release the suspect’s name and booking photo here when formal charges are filed.”

A bystander captured a video of the incident.

Another video appeared to show the suspect being taken into custody, but Timcast could not independently verify that it was the same arrest.

Several other videos showed Sen. Cruz being booed and heckled by people in the crowd as he rode in an open-back humvee with his friends and family.

The urban areas of Houston lean heavily in favor of the Democrat Party.
