Pillow fight! Police release photo of man suspected of assaulting CEO and Trump supporter Mike Lindell at South Dakota cyber symposium on 2020 election 'fraud'

 Police have identified a man suspected of allegedly assaulting MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell at a South Dakota hotel last week prior to his QAnon cyber symposium on election fraud by poking him aggressively. 

Sioux Falls Police confirmed they have identified a man suspected of committing an assault at a hotel near Russell St. and West Ave last week.

Police released the man's photo on Wednesday but have not confirmed the man is connected Lindell's assault, although the location, time and photo match the Lindell's report about the attack.

Lindell was in South Dakota hosting a 72-hour marathon cyber symposium where he attempted to prove his baseless election fraud claims.

The MyPillow CEO took the stage and told the crowd 'I'm okay but it hurts' after the alleged confrontation on Wednesday night.

It came just hours after he fled the stage when he found out he has lost a bid to dismiss a $1.3 billion lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems over Lindell's claims the machines had been rigged to cost Donald Trump the 2020 election. 

Following his assault claims, Sioux Falls police told DailyMail.com they sent an officer to speak with Lindell and later confirmed that an assault was reported on Wednesday evening at around 11:30 p.m. 

A day after the alleged assault Lindell said he had been aggressively poked by a selfie-taker at the hotel he was staying at. 

Lindell said the assault left him doubled over in pain and that he would conduct his own investigation into how the photo-seeker could have shoved an object between his ribs, leaving him unable to move his right arm, Argusleader.com reported. 


Mike Lindell on Thursday claimed he was 'attacked' at his hotel in Sioux Falls, South Dakota during his 'cyber symposium' claiming the 2020 election was rigged against Donald Trump.

'He put his arm around and stuck his finger, it was so much pressure, I just knew if I did anything something more was coming,' Lindell said on a conservative talk show last week. 'He jammed it in where it was just piercing pain.' 

Lindell called the poking incident a 'set up' and said if he had fought back, there would've been pictures or video shared on social media of the altercation.

But Jeff Buongiorno, a witness to the incident, cast doubt on Lindell's story, telling AP on Tuesday 'There was no attack.'  

Lindell and former Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell are being sued by Dominion for allegedly defamatory statements they knowingly pushed claiming the company's voting machines were rigged in favor of Joe Biden.

Lindell offered $5 million to anyone who showed up to his event and could disprove his claims.

However, his 'lead cyber expert' Josh Merritt admitted Wednesday those claims were false.

He said the data provided by Lindell 'cannot prove a cyberincursion by China' in an interview with the Washington Times, and concluded 'we’re not going to say that this is legitimate if we don’t have confidence in the information.'

Earlier in his symposium Lindell vowed he would not get off stage for the full duration of the event.

'There's no breaks!' he yelled in a video clip of the event posted by a Daily Beast journalist on Twitter. 'This never stops. You guys can go eat that's fine but I ain't eating. I'm staying up here for 72 hours before they ruin our signal!'

But later that evening, moments after Nichols' rejection came down, Lindell was seen jogging off the stage in the middle of one of his invited 'expert's' speeches.
