The state prosecution was set to indict Pinchas Cohen on Thursday morning, on suspicion of attacking Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch the previous day.

The 52-year-old resident apparently threw two of his sneakers at the chief justice as she presided over a court hearing, striking her in the face with the first shoe and knocking her off her chair as the second whizzed past.

Cohen was arrested directly after the incident.
