Republican Governor of South Dakota, Kristi Noem, was forced to leave an event in support of President Trump on Wednesday after a man brandished multiple weapons during the event. The incident took place in Bangor, Maine and the man has been arrested. 

In a statement issued Wednesday, the Highway Patrol stated “Two South Dakota Highway Patrol troopers, who were serving as the governor’s security detail Wednesday in Maine, encountered a person brandishing a weapon in an area where the governor and others were located”. Nobody was hurt and President Trump himself didn’t not attend the event. Noem is still scheduled to campaign for President this weekend.
