Theres been another pie assault against a state official. An opponent of the proposed Highway 55 expansion hit a state senator with a coconut cream pie Tuesday following her refusal to hear an expansion- related resolution. Minneapolis D-F-Ler Carol Flynn was shaken but uninjured and capitol police immediately arrested a man and his suspected accomplice. The man is expected to be charged with assault on a public official and disturbing the Legislature. Its the second pie-throwing incident in less than a week involving a state official. On Thursday, Governor Ventura was targeted by a pie-thrower. The pie grazed Venturas arm but hit a security guard in the head. A state patrol official says authorities aren sure if the incidents are related. The Senate had just let out when the man approached Flynn and smeared the pie in her face and hair. She slipped as she lunged to grab him. A woman stumbled down the stairs during the altercation, but she refused medical attention. (Copyright 1999 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
