News (AP) - Bond set at $250,000 for woman in pie attack on Senator Carl Levin

BIG RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- An anti-war protester accused of hitting Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin in the face with an apple pie during a constituent meeting in northern Michigan is jailed on a $250,000 bond.

Twenty-two-year-old Ahlam M. Mohsen of Coldwater was arraigned Tuesday on a felony count of stalking and other charges.

A Mecosta County district judge set her bond at $250,000, requiring a cash payment of $25,000 for her to get out of jail.

Mohsen has said she opposes U.S. military policy and its support for Israel. She was arrested last year for sitting in at Levin's Lansing office.

The attack happened Monday at the Michigan Democrat's appearance at a restaurant in Big Rapids.
