(TheRedWire.com) – In a notable event that unfolded during a political campaign visit to Phoenix, Vice President Kamala Harris’ motorcade became the unexpected target of an individual’s disruptive actions. Anasilvia Gomez-Zamora, a 30-year-old woman, was implicated in this disturbance after reportedly hurling a red liquid towards the convoy. The incident took place in the early evening hours, around 6 p.m., on a Friday, at the crossroads of 7th Street and Southern Avenue, a moment that quickly escalated from an ordinary campaign stop to a matter of public safety and law enforcement intervention.

Gomez-Zamora’s actions led to her arrest and the subsequent filing of serious charges against her. Among these charges were aggravated assault on a police officer, an offense that highlights the severity of her actions, endangerment, underlining the potential risk her actions posed to those around her, and resisting arrest, indicating her non-compliance with law enforcement officials during the apprehension process. According to reports from the Phoenix Police, Gomez-Zamora was situated on a sidewalk adjacent to the route of the vice president’s motorcade when she launched the red liquid, which then landed on eight motorcycle officers who were part of the extensive security detail.

Despite the unforeseen incident, the professionalism and preparedness of the motor officers and their colleagues ensured that the motorcade could continue along its planned route without further disturbance. The swift actions of these officers not only maintained the security of the vice president but also led to the prompt location and arrest of Gomez-Zamora. Following an investigation into the incident, the substance thrown was analyzed and determined to be non-hazardous, alleviating any immediate concerns regarding potential harm to the officers or bystanders.

Gomez-Zamora was subsequently booked into the Maricopa County jail on Saturday following her arrest. However, records indicate that she has been released since then, pending further legal proceedings. This incident occurred against the backdrop of Vice President Harris’ visit to Phoenix, which was part of her “Fight for Reproductive Freedoms” tour. The campaign focuses on advocating for abortion access and reproductive rights, marking Harris’ continued efforts to address this critical issue during her fourth visit to Arizona in her official capacity as vice president.
