Steven Abberley charged with House of Commons marble throwing

Yes, a man threw marbles in the Commons (UK Parliament--you know the building with the tower that holds Big Ben) during Prime Minister's question time.
It is claimed Mr Abberley sparked a security alert by hurling the marbles towards MPs during the debate.
Wait, it gets better:
He has also been charged with criminal damage after allegedly scrawling offensive graffiti on a wall on the Parliamentary estate between 6 and 7 May.
MPs and journalists heard a loud bang and shouting at about 12.30 BST on Thursday, but the proceedings were not disturbed.
Yes, but unlike the bangs in North America, this was the clattering of marbles.
