Driver faces charges after crashing into pro-Trump store

The driver of a car with a sticker criticizing former President Donald Trump faces charges after police say he intentionally crashed into a pro-Trump store in Massachusetts. Police later identified the driver as Sean Flaherty, 46, of Raynham. He faces charges of reckless operation of a motor vehicle and malicious destruction of property. Malicious destruction of property is a felony charge. This suggests that police believe there is probable cause that the crash was intentional and malicious. Video posted by the Easton Police Department on Facebook shows the black Volkswagen Jetta slamming through the window and driving through several shelves of clothing inside the New England for Trump store. Police said they were dispatched to the scene around 5:10 p.m. An employee was inside the store at the time of the crash. Police said he was not injured. The store is located at 620 Washington St., Route 138, next to several restaurants and other businesses. A large sign in the style of Trump campaign signs advertises “T-shirts, hats, flags and more” and Trump flags fill most of the windows. “Just before he did this, there was a little boy with his mother shopping at this place,” said Keith Lambert, the store owner. “The clerk was about to go to the bathroom and he was allegedly hit.” “Thank God no one was hurt, that’s all I can say,” Lambert also said. Police said Flaherty was taken to Good Samaritan Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries after the crash. Images by Brockton Enterprise photographer Marc Vasconcellos show several bumper stickers on the rear of the Jetta, including one with a photo of Trump. The sticker features a quote from Voltaire and a barcode on Trump’s upper lip appears to be a reference to Adolf Hitler. Easton Police said the Motor Vehicle Registry had also been asked to revoke Flaherty’s license immediately.
