A truck with a Trump bumpersticker and American flags was torched in a school parking lot in Orange County, California last week.

The suspect was taken into custody after the act of arson that his mother said was done out of frustration. His mother?

The guy who torched the truck is 29-years-old but all his mom had to say is that he’s an Eagle Scout, according to local CBS 2.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department tweeted out about the arson:

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.
