Warrant Obtained For Deandre Harris, Black Man Filmed Beaten In Charlottesville Riot


Merritt anticipates that the person who sought Harris' arrest will claim self-defense "but under no one's legal standard is it self-defense to chase after someone wielding a flashlight when one of his friends is being speared with a pole, and then beating him maliciously", Merritt asserts.

A picture and video of DeAndre Harris, 20, being attacked by a group at a the August rally quickly went viral.

At the rally, Heather Heyer was killed when a auto struck a crowd of counter protesters.

The circumstances behind the issuance of a warrant for Harris' arrest were not initially made public, but Charlottesville police promised an explanation following the arrest. For Crews' complaint, the magistrate contacted police, Upman explained, who verified Crews' allegations (the specifics of which have yet to be made available to the public by the police) and issued the warrant. He said his client would surrender to police in the coming days. "Now it's up to the police department to show us the proof".

The probe also said none of the witnesses supported the claim of a short circuit on the bridge leading to the chaos. The CCTV footage from 9 am to 11 am was also examined and the panel probed each movement very minutely, he said.

Alex Michael Ramos and another man were charged with malicious wounding in September in the attack against Harris.

He is accused of malicious wounding in the assault and is also the victim of a beating that same day in the parking garage.

For many in Charlottesville, the warrant is a continuation of discrimination and inequality in their community. "This is also a commission meeting, so the city is planning to build an enormous building on Water Street that is meant for people not with low-income abilities to live there".

The protesters shouted slogans and waved banners in support of DeAndre Harris.

Goodwin was wearing a military-style helmet and toting a plastic shield during the savage assault as white nationalists descended on Charlottesville.

But the confrontation at the parking garage - located next to the Charlottesville police department headquarters - became a bigger flashpoint this week after Harris was charged with a crime in connection with the brawl.

Still, Fitzhugh was charged with misdemeanour assault and battery and disturbing the peace.

King outed Goodwin last month and turned his evidence over to Charlottesville police. According to The Washington Post, the man accusing Harris, identified as Harold Ray Crews by Harris" attorney, "describes himself as a "Southern Nationalist' and an attorney on Twitter".
