Gregory William Loel Timm Bio, Wiki
Gregory William Loel Timm is a 27-years-old man from Florida, who accused of driving his van through a tent where a local Republican group was registering voters. Timm has lived in Jacksonville for two years and was recently hired by an international venue management company as a sound engineer. He had recently joined the union.
Driving Through Voter Registration Booth
Timm was arrested for driving through a voter registration tent in Jacksonville, Fla., on Feb. 9, 2020. He reportedly crashing a van into the tent of a Republican voter group was training to become a sound engineer on the First Coast. Nobody was injured when Timm allegedly drove his van into the tent belonging to the Republican Party of Duval County while volunteers were registering people to vote at the Walmart in Sandalwood.
Republican officials called the incident a politically motivated attack, while Trump tweeted about it Saturday, saying that law enforcement has been notified.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Timm has an attorney. Jail records didn’t list one. In a court appearance Sunday, a judge set his bond at $500,000, NBC affiliate WTLV reported.
Phillips said he went by “William,” and that he was hired at ASM Global, an international venue management and services company.
According to Phillips, Timm had just been hired at ASM (formerly known as SMG) and was training to become a sound engineer. First Coast News has reached out to ASM Global for a statement. We are still waiting for a response.
Phillips said union members immediately recognized Timm’s van and mugshot from the pictures provided by witnesses and the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.
“We are just horrified,” Phillips said over the phone.
She said Timm was immediately suspended from the union, and that the union will provide a full statement on the matter. She added that he will not be granted I.A.T.S.E. union membership in the future.
Timm faces multiple charges, including two counts of aggravated assault on a person 65 years of age or older, one count of criminal mischief and driving with a suspended license. He is expected to appear in court Sunday.
