PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - A woman has pleaded guilty to throwing a sports drink at a Florida congressman who frequently appears on television supporting President Donald Trump.

Federal court records show that 35-year-old Amanda Kondrat'yev pleaded guilty to assault Thursday in Pensacola.

Authorities say Kondrat'yev was part of a group protesting in June outside a town hall meeting attended by U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz.

The second-term Republican was leaving a coffee house when a cup struck him in the back.

Several witnesses identified Kondrat'yev as the assailant, and the throw was caught on video.

Kondrat'yev faces up to a year in prison at her Oct. 17 sentencing.
