Charges Dropped Against White Claw Bandit

Since we’re talking about Texas crime.

A grand jury has dropped charges against a Texas man who threw unopened cans of White Claw at Ted Cruz during an Astros World Series parade in Houston.


A charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon against Joseph Halm Arcidiacono, 33, was dismissed on Friday, according to a court filing obtained by the Houston Chronicle.


Mr Arcidiacono was arrested after he approached a police barricade during the Astros victory parade in downtown Houston on 7 November last year and threw two cans of the hard seltzer at the Texas senator.


Mr Cruz was standing on a float alongside military veterans and was struck in the chest and neck, Houston police said at the time.




Footage of the incident went viral on Twitter, prompting a response from Mr Cruz.


“As always I’m thankful for the Houston Police and Capitol Police for their quick action.


“I’m also thankful that the clown who threw his White Claw had a noodle for an arm.”
