CHARLOTTESVILLE - The suspect being held in a Virginia jail in connection with a deadly crash near a scheduled rally of white nationalists has been identified as James Alex Fields Jr., 20, of Maumee, Ohio, according to Superintendent Martin Kumer with the Albermarle-Charlottesville County Regional Jail.

Video of the incident shows the auto driving at a high rate of speed over multiple counter-protesters at the rally.

On Saturday afternoon, a auto plowed through a crowd of anti-racist protestors, killing one and injuring several others, in Charlottesville, Va., and several hours later, a suspect was arrested and is now being held at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail.

The Charlottesville Police Department said in a statement Saturday night that James Alex Fields Jr. of OH also faces three counts of malicious wounding, and one count related to leaving the scene.

There was no other activity at the home.

Authorities arrested a 20 year old man for allegedly plowing his vehicle into a crowd of protestors in Charlottesville, VA.

A photograph attributed to The Daily Progress, the daily newspaper in the Charlottesville area, clearly shows the OH plate.

Earlier today the Charlottesville Chief of Police announced that they had Mr. Fields in custody and while charges were pending, they were investigating this as a homicide.

The incident took place approximately two hours after violent clashes between white nationalists and counter-protesters caused authorities to declare the "Unite the Right" rally an unlawful assembly, The Associated Press reported.
