A man has been arrested after slamming his car directly into a pro-Trump store in Massachusetts, narrowly missing an employee who was inside the building.

The whole incident, which happened in Easton around 5 p.m. Thursday, was caught on tape by a surveillance camera, showing the terrifying moment when a Volkswagon Jetta sporting an anti-Trump bumper sticker plowed through the front of the New England For Trump store, taking out rows of merchandise and scaring the mess out of the poor man who happened to be standing nearby.

The driver, identified 46-year-old Sean Flaherty of Raynham, Massachusetts, was transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, local reports stated. Thankfully, no one else was injured.

Flaherty has since been charged with reckless operation of a motor vehicle and malicious destruction of property, and authorities have asked for his license to be revoked. Police say they are still investigating the incident and haven't yet released an official cause for the crash - though the "malicious destruction" charge and the clear video of the incident certainly lend a few hints.
