Supreme Court president assaulted in court
Judge Dorit Beinisch was hearing a case on medical marijuana.
One shoe hit Beinisch in the face, and she fell off her chair.
The courtroom erupted into mayhem, the hearing was suspended, and the judges left to their chambers.
The Supreme Court bailiffs overcame the assailant, arrested him, and he is now being questioned.
The Supreme Court spokesman said that Beinish was bruised and received first aid. The other Supreme Court hearings continued normally.
