Sen. Carl Levin in the face with an apple pie has been charged with
An indictment filed Thursday charges Ahlam Mohsen of Coldwater
with two counts of assault against the Democrat while he was
meeting with constituents in August in Big Rapids. Her friend Max
Kantar of Big Rapids was also charged.
U.S. Attorney Don Davis in Grand Rapids says elected leaders
should be able to listen to constituents without being attacked.
Messages seeking comment were left for Mohsen and Kantar, who
are both 23. Mohsen's father, Mohamed Mohsen, said she's unaware of
Levin spokeswoman Tara Andringa said he wasn't immediately
available for comment. At the time of the incident, the senator
