SALT LAKE CITY — A man who left yolk on the face of a Salt Lake police officer has been arrested.

Officers were patrolling the area near 500 South and 55 West on foot about 5 a.m. Tuesday when they heard someone from the seventh-floor balcony of a nearby apartment complex yell obscenities at them. The man then threw an egg at the officers, striking one of them, according to police.
