Man Who Threw White Claw At Ted Cruz Says He Wanted Him To Chug It

  • The attorney of Joey Arcidiacono, the man who allegedly threw a White Claw at Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz during the Houston Astros’ World Series parade, is now saying that Arcidiacono wanted the senator to chug it.
  • Arcidiacono’s attorney, Bill Stradley, released a statement on his law firm’s Twitter page, saying that “political violence is never acceptable” and what happened at the parade was “not political violence nor ‘aggravated assault,’” just an “Astros fan trying to toss drinks from his cooler to the Senator.” Following the event, Cruz’s security apprehended Arcidiacono who was later charged with aggravated assault and received a $40,000 bail.
  • “We have seen various videos and understand why Senator Cruz’s security detail was alert for potential violence. Instead, this was an Astros fan trying to toss drinks from his cooler to the Senator during a championship parade and not realizing how it would be perceived until he saw security’s reaction,” Stradley wrote in the statement.
