Ohio Man, 20, Arrested in Car Attack — WashPost

James Alex Fields Jr Full Story & Must See Details

The auto had an OH license plate and the driver was promptly arrested. Fields faces second degree murder charges for killing a woman and injuring 19 other people.

Hours before the crash, Governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency around 11:40 a.m., disrupting the main part of the event which was slated to fully kick off at noon. But as the climate calmed Fields allegedly drove his auto into a group of counter-protestors.

Videos of the incident show the Challenger barreling into pedestrians at high speed and slamming into the back of a second vehicle. Fields then put the vehicle in reverse and zoomed away.

Virginia Secretary of Public Safety Brian Moran said the driver, a man, has been arrested.

Some 19 people were injured, five critically, officials said.

In a video filmed by Augustus Invictus, he is seen marching with attendees commenting on their high energy and high testosterone while they were chanting "Fuck off commies this is our town now", "You will not replace us", "One people, one nation, end immigration", and "Blood and Soil".

Republican strategist Ana Navarro commented on Trump's statement and said: 'This is not "many sides".

The president said he had a conversation with McAuliffe and would provide any federal support needed to help the state. "Law enforcement continues to investigate the incident, and it is my hope that any individuals responsible for criminal acts are held accountable".

Saturday's Unite the Right demonstration was greenlighted by the authorities as a rally against the removal of confederate general Robert E. Lee monument from a local park.

Alt-right activists marched in a torch-lit rally late Friday through the University of Virginia campus and clashed with rival protesters, CNN reported. The deadly crash happened after a white supremacists rally turned violent while entering into Charlottesville.

"I strongly condemn the unprovoked assault on members of our community, including University personnel who were attempting to maintain order", she said in a statement.
