On Saturday, a van driven by Gregory William Loel Timm rammed into a Republican Party tent set up with volunteers registering voters. After Timm rammed the tent, he flipped off shocked bystanders and even took a video of the aftermath before driving away.

Jacksonville, Florida police have now arrested the 27-year-old man and charged him with two counts of aggravated assault on a person over 65 years old, criminal mischief and driving without a license.

Timm was identified as the person behind the wheel of the van that rammed the tent that had been set up in the parking lot of a Walmart. One volunteer who was working at the tent said, “It happened so quickly. I just barely got out of the way.”

President Trump tweeted out about the incident:

Even though there were no injuries, the driver drove very close to the volunteers and destroyed the tent.
