Ernst was arrested for disorderly conduct and released. According to the incident report, she was seen reaching into her purse for the shoe and then throwing it at Clinton. No charges have been filed at this time but Ernst was ordered to return for a June court hearing.

The former secretary of state dodged the object that was hurled at her just moments after she took the stage at an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino.

"My goodness, I didn't know that solid waste management was so controversial,” Clinton joked. “Thank goodness she didn't play softball like I did."
