Calgary woman found guilty of pie assault on Alberta premier

Court heard Lily Phan grabbed a handful of pie and launched herself toward the premier at a Stampede breakfast in 2007.

 

A judge has found a Calgary woman who tried to throw a pie at Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach guilty of assault and resisting arrest.

 

Court heard Lily Phan grabbed a handful of pie and launched herself toward the premier at a Stampede breakfast in 2007.

 

A sheriff got in the way and got smacked with most of the pastry.

 

During the arrest, the woman managed to get another handful of pie and threw herself at authorities.

The Crown wants a 30-day jail term, but the defence argues Phan shouldn’t spend any time behind bars.

Sentencing has been put off to a later date.
