(Reuters)-A Colorado student faced misdemeanor charges on Wednesday for flinging glitter toward Mitt Romney. Video (http://youtube.com/watch?v=jPKHW6IlRHs) of the incident shows Romney shaking hands with supporters in an auditorium when the glitter is thrown at him and Secret Service agents usher him away.
Smith was escorted out by other agents and local authorities. Denver authorities detained Smith for questioning on Tuesday night, and he was cited on misdemeanor charges of creating a disturbance, throwing a missile and an unlawful act on school property. Smith, who faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted, said he has no regrets about his protest.
