Last night at a charity event, Kevin Johnson was hit in the face with a pie after a protestor was able to get closer to Sacramento’s Mayor.

According to ESPN:

The mayor had given a speech at the Seeds of HOPE dinner at Sacramento Charter High School before the man came up, pulled the pie from a bag and shoved it into Johnson’s face, according to the mayor’s chief of staff, Crystal Strait.

She said the mayor defended himself against the man, but she would not give details.

The assailant was arrested and taken to the hospital, then booked for assaulting a public figure.
