A quintet of Palm Beach, Florida middle schoolers tossed a piece of a 2×4 at President Trump’s motorcade on Friday morning as the chief exec was on his way to his Mar-a-Lago estate.
According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office (PBSO), one of the young teens confessed to the, er, tossing. All five face charges.

The [PBSO] release said: ‘While assisting the United States Secret Service with a motorcade movement for President Donald Trump it was reported that a vehicle in the motorcade had been struck by what was believed to be a small hard object.
‘The incident was reported to have taken place on Southern Boulevard between Parker Avenue and Lake Avenue.’
Demonstrators were at the corner as the motorcade went by, the report said.
Several members of the motorcade returned to the scene after completing the motorcade to look for witnesses and objects along the roadway.
According to CNN, both a wooden chunk and a baseball-sized rock were taken and placed in bags by a sheriff’s office crime scene unit.
Since they are minors, the students’ names were withheld.
