    Houston law enforcement officials released a statement Monday afternoon saying that they arrested a 33-year-old man for assaulting Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) during a Houston Astros celebration parade.

    "HPD made one arrest during today's victory parade," the Houston Police Department said in a statement. "A male, 33, threw a beer can at U.S. Senator Ted Cruz as the Senator was on a float in the 2400 block of Smith St. The beer can struck the Senator in the chest/neck area. The Senator did not require medical attention."

    "Nearby HPD officers arrested the male without further incident," the statement continued. "He was taken to jail and faces assault charges. We will release the suspect's name and booking photo here when formal charges are filed."

    The can of beer that was thrown at Cruz did not appear to be opened, meaning it would be considerably heavier than an empty can, as a thud could be heard once it feel into the back of the military Hummer that was Cruz was riding in. Cruz's young daughters were standing next to him when the attack happened.

    "As always I'm thankful for the Houston Police and Capitol Police for their quick action," Cruz said in a statement to The Daily Wire. "I'm also thankful that the clown who threw his White Claw had a noodle for an arm."

    A video showed Cruz on the back of the truck reacting as a beer can came flying toward him. He and a staffer both reached up at the same time, attempting to deflect the can away with their hands, but it did strike Cruz. The staffer then pointed into the crowd, showing police and parade security officials where the offending beer can had come from.

    Cruz attended the event after the Houston Astros won the World Series over the weekend, beating the Philadelphia Phillies four games to two by a final score of 4 to 1.
