The black man who was brutally beaten at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville has handed himself into police over a charge of unlawful wounding at the protest.
Jacob Scott Goodwin, 22, of Ward, Arkansas, was arrested Tuesday night on a warrant from Charlottesville police by USA marshals near his hometown, according to Lt. Matthew Edwards, spokesman for the Lonoke County Sheriff's Office in Arkansas.
In September, two men - 33-year-old Alex Michael Ramos and 18-year-old Daniel Borden - were charged with malicious wounding in the attack against.
Merlyn Goeschl, a local magistrate, issued the warrant for Harris on a felony charge of unlawful wounding Monday, part of the continuing fallout from a viral video of the parking garage assault during the August 12 "Unite the Right" rally.
Harris was taken before the magistrate and released on an unsecured bond, Charlottesville police told WVIR. But Harris's attorney, S. Lee Merritt, has argued that Harris did not injure Crews "in any way" and that footage from the rally shows that Crews was actually hurt by other counterprotesters in a separate incident. Both are being held without bond. He was served the warrant charging him with unlawful wounding.
