Man Arrested For Spitting On Jane Fonda

Jane Fonda is out on the road hawking her new tell-all memoir, but apparently one Missouri man decided to let “Hanoi Jane” know how he really felt about her.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Police said they arrested a man for spitting on two-time Academy Award-winning actress Jane Fonda during a book-signing stop in Kansas City Tuesday night.

Fonda, 67, spoke at Unity Temple, in The Plaza shopping district, about her new best-selling book, “My Life So Far,” and her new movie with Jennifer Lopez called “Monster-In-Law.”

At about 9 p.m., police said, a man who had been waiting in line for about 90 minutes, passed a book to Fonda and then spit a large amount of tobacco juice into her face.

Michael A. Smith, 54, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, which is a city charge.While Fonda is contemptible, even she deserves not to be spat on. To her credit, Fonda declined to Fonda press charges.
