Man attacked during Charlottesville rally turns himself in

A man needed in association with a strike in Charlottesville on August 12 has handed himself over to police.

According to WVIR, three men are accused of attacking Harris inside a parking garage on August 12.

Merritt said Crews was injured in a different incident that day that took place after Harris was already in the hospital.

Another individual alleged that Mr Harris attacked him, prompting the warrant on Tuesday.

Harris" attorney, S. Lee Merritt, told the Washington Post that the warrant is "clearly retaliatory'. The police don't have sufficient probable cause to charge Harris, his lawyer said.

Daniel Borden, 18, of OH, and Alex Michael Ramos, 33, of Georgia, were also charged with malicious wounding last month in connection with the attack.

Goodwin is the third man arrested for being in the group that left Harris with many severe injuries, including a fractured wrist, head laceration, knee injury and several abrasions and contusions on his body. Both are being held without bond.

Jeff Fogel, who is running to become Charlottesville's Commonwealth Attorney, said that Charlottesville police have "a lot to explain", and has complained that police haven't been as quick to punish violent alt-right protesters as they have Harris.

A black man who was beaten at a far-right rally in Virginia has turned himself in to be formally charged in connection with the incident.

Lt. Steve Upman, a spokesman for police in Charlottesville, said Goodwin is charged with malicious wounding in the August 12 beating.

Former classmates at Mason High School in OH said he expressed anti-Semitic views.

"Based on the exception to the system, the word of one white supremacist, he's being called a felon and he's being (dragged) back through the system", Merritt said. 'There were some non-racist members who were going to a free speech rally'.

Harris is set to appear in court at 9 a.m. Friday.

Upman refused to identify the alleged victim or provide any other details about the alleged assault. James Fields Jr. has been charged with murder in Heyer's death.
