A union member from Arizona was arrested after driving his van through a Republican voter registration tent in Florida on Saturday putting half a dozen people’s lives in danger.
Gregory William Loel Timm, 27, was arrested after attacking the pro-Trump, Republican voter registration tent in the parking lot of a Jacksonville, Florida, Walmart location.
“On Saturday, February 8, 2020, a dispute was reported in the area of 11900 Atlantic Boulevard,” the sheriff’s office said in a press release. “Officers with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office responded and determined that an aggravated assault had occurred. The victims reported that the suspect drove a van through the tent where they were working to register voters. The suspect was subsequently identified and arrested.”
The police said that it did not yet have a motive but noted that he is facing two counts of aggravated assault on a person 65 years or older.
On Saturday, the Ducal County GOP reported what happened:
“At approximately 2:45 p.m. a multi-colored brown and gold van driven by what is described as a white male in his 20s or 30s, accelerated into a crowd of volunteers at the Kernan Village shopping center located at 11900 Atlantic Boulevard. Thankfully, Republican volunteers narrowly avoided being struck by the accelerating van. The driver sped away after making an obscene gesture toward the crowd.”

The attacker allegedly jumped out of his vehicle and began taking video of the carnage after he drove through the tent.
Originally from Arizona, Timm has only lived in Jacksonville for two years and is a member of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees.
The would-be murderer appears to have wanted to join the Navy SEALs but apparently failed to be accepted.
According to police documents, this man attacked the GOP tent specifically because he hates Trump and Republicans:
NEW from Jacksonville. The police report is public and it is abundantly clear that he attacked the @realDonaldTrump volunteers b/c he does not like the President. Unbelievable. #LeadRight pic.twitter.com/gAMt8JSTzs
