The 24-year-old woman who allegedly tried to slap an egg over the head of Prime Minister Scott Morrison at a Country Women’s Association event in Albury this month has faced court over the matter – but it could be a while before she enters a plea on the charge of common assault.

Amber Holt today fronted a NSW court to face the aforementioned assault charge, along with one count of marijuana possession.

News Corp reports Holt’s defence team is still negotiating with NSW Police in regards to the assault charge, but Holt did plead guilty to drug possession. She will have to report to community service within the next week.

The matter returns to court on July 8.

Holt stands accused of working her way to within striking distance of the PM during the May 7 event and then throwing an egg at his head.

Video of the incident shows an egg rolling, uncracked, over the top of Morrison’s noggin, before a brief scuffle breaks out among his entourage. Police allege that during that brief bout of chaos, a 70-year-old woman was knocked to the ground. Nobody was injured in the fracas.

Holt’s attempt came in the weeks after Will Connolly‘s instantly notorious egging of racist former senator Fraser Anning. Connolly and Anning – who reached out to strike the 17-year-old – escaped charges over that incident, but one of Anning’s supporters did cop an assault charge for retaliating against the school kid.
