He was arrested by the high court security guards and handed to the police, who are interrogating him after registering a formal complaint.
Around 5 pm, petitioner Bhawani Das did an 'action replay', throwing his shoe at Justice Kalpesh Jhaveri.
Justice Jhaveri had apparently set aside a lower court order favouring Das, a tea stall owner from Rajkot, whose stall had been demolished by the Rajkot Municipal Corporation.
He had approached a local court, which ruled in his favour and ordered that his stall be restored. But Das got miffed after the HC set the order aside.
He has also been arrested.
"In both incidents, the shoes were hurled from a distance, so they fell short of the podium where the judge sits," said a police officer.
