Ahlam Mohsen, 24, and Max Kantar, 23, both from Michigan, reportedly attacked U.S. Sen. Carl Levin in August 2010 while Levin was at a deli in Grand Rapids.

Kantar read a statement and then Mohsen hit Levin in the face with the pie, the report said. After being arrested, Kantar claimed that his message had been "lost."

Levin was "pied" due to his role as chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. The pie did not cause him bodily harm, the report said.
