Anti-cop Tara Olivia Plum accused of assaulting her father


A former Instacart driver accused of destroying a Minnesota couple’s groceries over their pro-police sign is facing new charges for allegedly assaulting his father.

Tara Olivia Plum – who made headlines in December when Blaine police said she called cops ‘racist pigs’ on the elderly couple’s receipt – was arrested at a Coon home on Wednesday Rapids after the alleged attack, the Star Tribune reported.

Plum, 37, “charged and pushed” her father, knocking him to the ground, according to charges filed Thursday in Anoka County District Court.

“My dad is a dead man when I go out,” Plum yelled as she brawled with officers trying to arrest her, according to charging documents.

Plum’s frightened father had scratches on his shoulder and was curled up in a fetal position on the ground when cops responded to the residence, authorities said.

When cops told the former Instacart driver she was arrested, Plum made her intentions clear, according to a criminal complaint.

“That’s not happening,” she reportedly said before turning to walk away.

Plum, who already faces up to 90 days in jail if convicted of the December incident, resisted arrest, prompting several other cops to respond. An officer was cut when she scratched him, according to the complaint.

Plum was charged with two counts of domestic assault and obstruction of legal process, according to prison records. She was being held at the Anoka County Jail ahead of her court appearance on Friday. It is unclear whether she has hired an attorney who could comment on her behalf.

Police previously accused Plum of destroying the couple’s groceries because she saw a ‘Thank you Blaine PD’ sign in their front yard – which led to the food delivery service driver leaving an offensive message on their receipt.

“Instacart does not pay employees,” the note read. “[Sorry] find another slave.

The hate-filled note also included the words “police pigs,” but Blaine police said the matter did not constitute a hate crime.

Instacart removed Plum from its platform in December and refunded the couple whose $50 groceries were destroyed.

An online fundraiser set up for the couple, meanwhile, had eclipsed $13,000 before it closed.
