Man in heels creates stir at Ryan event
A robust discussion in front of Brownson Arena on Monday culminated with a woman throwing a plastic water bottle at a man who was capturing the moment on camera.
Ryan O’Hara, who said he had no ax to grind either way, said he saw a shouting match break out between a woman wearing a pink hat and a man, Chaaz Paulandsandras, who stood in large, pink high heels speaking to supporters of Paul Ryan, the Republican nominee for vice president.
At one point, the woman flung a bottle of water at him, O’Hara said.
“The lady yelled at me,” O’Hara said. “She targeted me because I was videotaping.”
A woman wearing a pink hat left the area shortly afterward with a crying child in tow.
Grand Junction police told him that they had contacted the woman and that she would apologize to him, O’Hara said, adding that he hoped for a stronger punishment.
