On News!! Arrest Warrant Issued For Black Man Beaten By White Supremacists



A black man who was assaulted by white supremacists in a parking garage during violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August is facing an arrest warrant for the incident.
A Virginia magistrate issued the warrant for Deandre Harris, 20, who is now wanted on charges of unlawful wounding in connection with the Aug. 12 incident, according to WCPO-TV.

Harris was one of a dozen people injured during the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, where white supremacists gathered to protest the proposed removal of statue honoring Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. They were met by hundreds of counter-demonstrators.

In one of the many fights that broke out, videos and photo tweets posted by journalists showed white supremacist marchers beating Harris with signs and poles. Also that day, a car plowed into a group of the counter-protesters, killing a 32-year-old woman. A 20-year-old who was part of the white supremacist rally has been charged in that attack.
