DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A 20-year-old Drake University student from Illinois is charged with assaulting a police officer - with candy.
Officials say Sean McGuire of Glenview was arrested Sunday at a convenience store. He's accused of throwing several M&M's at a Des Moines police officer, who was investigating a hit & run accident.
Police reports say Drake security guards noticed the candies falling on the ground around the officer. When the officer turned around, 1 of the candies hit his shoulder.
Authorities say McGuire claims he threw the candy because he was "sticking up for his friend," who apparently was the man suspected in the accident.
McGuire is out on bond. He didn't return a call seeking comment.
