A Florida man in Jacksonville, Florida, who drove his van through a tent where Trump supporters were working to register voters on Saturday has been identified by police as Gregory Timm.

As Timm drove his van through the tent he barely missed hitting several people who are members of the Duval County GOP set up registering people to vote. After crashing through the tent he fled the scene. He was caught by the police just a few hours later.

Images of the vehicle fleeing the scene and the aftermath were posted to Twitter by the Duval County GOP.

Duval GOP Chairman Dean Black made this statement on Facebook, “We are outraged by this senseless act of violence toward our great volunteers. The Republican Party of Duval County will not be intimidated by these cowards and we will not be silenced. I call on every Republican in our great city to stand up, get involved, and show these radicals that we will not be intimidated from exercising our Constitutional rights.”

“I just spoke to the local GOP chair. This is outrageous,” said Lenny Curry, the Mayor of Jacksonville in response to the attack. “The hate is toxic and dangerous. Thankfully no one was injured but certainly, they are shaken after being targeted because they were registering voters. I’ve spoken to the Sheriff and of course, his team is on top of this,” said Curry in a statement.

Even President Trump spoke out against this senseless act of violence.

Gregory Timm has been arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault of a person 65 years of age or older, which if convicted could carry a felony sentence and up to three years in prison, one count of criminal mischief, and driving with a suspended driver’s license.
