Police have charged the quote-unquote Egg Girl with one count of common assault after she allegedly attempted to smack the scone of Prime Minister Scott Morrison in rural New South Wales earlier today.
The incident occurred in Albury at around 11am this morning at a Country Women’s Association event at the Albury Entertainment Centre.
Extensive news footage from multiple angles captured the alleged egging on camera; the egg in question failed to break and fell to the ground.
Security then apprehended the alleged offender – named by The Australian as 24-year-old retail worker Amber Paige – and in the process a 70-year-old woman was knocked to the ground. Police confirmed no one involved suffered any injuries.
In a short statement issued to media this afternoon, police officials confirmed the 24-year-old woman was arrested and transported to Albury Police Station, where she was charged with one count of common assault. During a subsequent search, the woman was found to allegedly be in possession of cannabis. An additional charge of possess prohibited drug was laid.
She was granted “strict conditional bail” – she is very much NOT allowed to assault or threaten the PM while on bail – and is now set to appear at Albury Local Court on May 27th.
The real important lesson to take from all of this? If you’re planning on egging the Prime Minister, consider leaving your weed at home.
No real need for it in that moment, you’d reckon.Source: NSW Police
