Below, two views of what I think was the same limo which was protested by someone who threw a protest flare into its interior.

Here's Larry King (age 83) talking about what happened to his SUV:

I don't blame him for being rattled, if he was in the car. I don't know if anyone was in the car hit by the protest flare, but I don't believe that the "protesters" cared.
