Police said they're investigating an incident in which a car crashed through the front of a store in Easton, Mass., that sold merchandise associated with former President Donald Trump.
Easton Police Department Deputy Chief Keith Boone said in a statement obtained by The Epoch Times that the vehicle was operated by 46-year-old Sean Flaherty, who sustained non-life threatening injuries and was later taken to an area hospital.
"Flaherty has been charged with reckless operation of a motor vehicle and malicious destruction of property," Boone said, adding that more charges may follow.
The store employee was not injured during the crash, he added.
Boone said police have made a request to the motor vehicles registry to revoke Flaherty's license "as an immediate threat."
No further details on the crash were immediately available, but the incident comes at a time of heightened political division in the country and concern over a possible spiral of violence.
"Unfortunately, this attempted assassination can be traced directly to a longstanding pattern of violent rhetoric from Democrat officials," she wrote, citing a number of examples, including statements by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.).
"Every American remembers the devastating riots that took place in the spring and summer of 2020. However, Democrats would like you to forget the role they played in stoking the fires of resentment that led to billions in damage and dozens of deaths," McDaniel wrote.
“As the President has consistently made clear, public officials, including judges, must be able to do their jobs without concern for their personal safety or that of their families. And any threats of violence or attempts to intimidate justices have no place in our society,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters on June 8.
