The incident happened at the Tainan City election headquarters of the Tsai campaign, though the offices were not scheduled to start operations until December 14, the Central News Agency reported.
A man had been seen throwing eggs at the effigy of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential ticket around 2 a.m. Saturday. Party representatives reported the incident to the police, and by watching surveillance cameras, officers concluded the suspect was a local 42-year-old man named Cheng (鄭).
They went to his home and arrested him around 4 p.m., reports said. He had taken two or three eggs from home in order to “express a couple of things,” police quoted him as saying.
