Gregory William Loel Timm, 27,has been arrested in Jacksonville, Florida as a suspect involved in an incident in a Walmart parking lot.  According to reports, the suspect is believed to be the person who plowed into a Republican voter registration tent in which volunteers were registering people to vote.

News4 Jax reports:

Hours after a van plowed through a Republican Party tent where volunteers were registering voters, Jacksonville police arrested a 27-year-old man on two counts of aggravated assault on a person over 65 years old, criminal mischief and driving without a license.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office identified Gregory William Loel Timm as the person behind the wheel of the van that struck the tent set up the parking lot of a Walmart Superstore at the corner of Atlantic and Kernan boulevards about 3:50 p.m. Saturday.

Timm is accused of pulling up, driving through the tent and striking their tables.

“It happened so quickly,” said Nina Williams, a volunteer. “I just barely got out of the way.”

Lt. Larry Gayle said after driving through the tent, the driver, now identified as Timm, stopped, took a video and “flipped off” the people who were inside the tent before driving away. Investigators have been monitoring social media to see if the video shows up.

No injuries were reported. One of the volunteers provided photos of the older brown Chevrolet driving away.

“We don’t know if this is politically motivated,” Gayle said.

While the motive is as yet unclear and little is known about the suspect, the Duval County GOP believes it to have been politically motivated.

As do others in the Republican Party, up to and including President Trump.
