Video from the parade route shows the empty drink made a beeline for his head … but, thankfully for the senator, it clanked off his outstretched arm and didn’t appear to do any damage to the 51-year-old.
It’s unclear if any arrests were made over the throw, we’ve reached out to cops … but so far, no word back yet.
Ted Cruzis back in Texas, but he’s still hearing boos — the senator just got an earful of jeers from fans in Houston while he was riding in the Astros’ World Series parade.
Cruz was on a military jeep as part of the celebration for the best team in baseball … and cameras caught fans laying into him as his ride made its way through the streets.
People booed loudly … and, according to Astros reporter Ben DuBose, some even flipped the lawmaker the bird.
