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

Charlottesville Police said the alleged victim went to a magistrate's office to explain what happened and that after discussing his story with a detective, the magistrate issued the warrant.

Two men were later arrested in the attack on Harris, who said he suffered a concussion, a head laceration that required 10 staples and other injuries. The magistrate issued the warrant Monday after consulting with police.

"We find it highly offensive and upsetting", Lee Merritt, a civil lawyer for Harris, told the Washington Post about the warrant, adding that the charge was "clearly retaliatory".

A local magistrate judge has reportedly issued a warrant on charges of unlawful wounding in connection to a subsequent incident that took place during the same rally, where Harris allegedly attacked a man in the group that severely beat him. The charge: malicious wounding. Then, Harris - a former special education instructional assistant - swung a flashlight at the man, possibly striking him, according to the Post. Harris was seen bloodied in viral photos and a video after being attacked during the rally in August. "[Harris] is getting the same charge as [those] involved in a violent supremacist group who were involved in attacks, not only of DeAndre, but attacks of other people all weekend".

One of them, 33-year-old Alex Michael Ramos of Georgia, was identified after he posted about the incident on Facebook.

"I was there because, pretty much, I'm a conservative", he said. Harris will turn himself in in the next coming days, Merritt said.

Harris was participating in the counter-protest during the "Unite the Right" rally on August 12. That's when six of these #white nationalists came down and beat Harris as he was curled up on the ground.

Ramos and Borden are due back in Charlottesville General District Court on Thursday, as is Richard Wilson Preston, a Baltimore Ku Klux Klan leader who is accused of firing a gun during the rally. They were met by hundreds of counter-demonstrators.
