Ted Cruz was assaulted today by a man throwing a beer can during the parade in Houston after the Astros won the World Series.
Video below shows Cruz, and presumably his Secret Service agent, deflecting a beer can thrown from the crowd.

Cruz responded to the video saying he was thankful for the quick action of the Houston Police and the fact that the man throwing the beer had a ‘noodle for an arm’:
As always I’m thankful for the Houston Police and Capitol Police for their quick action.
I’m also thankful that the clown who threw his White Claw had a noodle for an arm. https://t.co/CRSfNHckA2
