Beer can thrown at Ted Cruz during Astros World Series parade

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was attacked by a bystander who threw a beer can at his head during a parade celebrating the Houston Astros World Series victory.

A staff member reached up to block the can, with police quickly tracking down the attacker.

The incident

"Cruz said on Twitter that the projectile was a can of White Claw, which calls its beverages 'hard cider,' a malt alcohol with a beer base that's also known as alcopop or malternative drinks," NBC News reported.

"In video of the incident posted on social media, boos can be heard coming from the parade crowd as Cruz drives by, standing in the back of a military style vehicle. A can hurtles toward his head, and people on the vehicle try to shield him from the projectile," it added.

Man arrested

"A 33-year-old Houston man has been arrested and charged after officers with the Houston Police Department said he threw two alcoholic beverage cans at Senator Ted Cruz during the World Series parade in downtown Houston," NBC-2 TV Houston reported.

"Officers said Senator Cruz was on a float in the 2400 block of Smith Street when the parade-goer threw the two full 12 oz. alcoholic beverage cans, one of which struck the senator in his chest/neck area," it added.

The man charged is expected to appear in court on Wednesday.

Arcidiacono has reportedly confessed to the event, apologizing for his poor actions.

The incident also comes just ahead of heated midterm elections in which Republicans hope to reclaim power in the House and Senate.
