On Saturday, six Trump campaign volunteers in Jacksonville, Florida were working to register voters. At approximately 2:45 p.m., a golden-colored van attempted intentionally ran through their booths with the intention of mauling volunteers. Thankfully, no one was injured.

After driving through the tent, knocking over tables and chairs, the man stopped, took a video and flipped the Republican volunteers off. The driver sped off but was later apprehended. 

Police arrested 27-year-old Gregory William Loel Timm. He was "charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a person over 65 years old, criminal mischief and driving without a license," News Jax 4 reported. 

Lt. Larry Gayle told News Jax 4 that police are monitoring social media to see if Timm's video will pop up. 

“We don’t know if this is politically motivated,” Gayle said. “We’ve got detectives coming out. We’re following up on information and trying to determine if we can identify this person right now.”

Multiple people condemned the attack as politically motivated, including Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, President Donald Trump, Florida Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott and Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry.
