Vandal throws eggs at Coleman's house

ST. PAUL - Former U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman says a young man on a bicycle threw eggs at his St. Paul house - one day after judges ruled Democrat Al Franken won last year's Senate race.

Coleman, a Republican, told police he heard thumping Tuesday night and when he went outside, a man launched another egg - and obscenities.

Coleman told the Pioneer Press he ducked in a "George Bush move," referring to how Bush dodged shoes thrown at him. Coleman said he chased the man, but didn't catch him.

St. Paul police are investigating. Someone also threw eggs at Coleman's house after the 2002 election.

Coleman intends to appeal the judges' decision.
