A 20-year-old Virginia man who gained nationwide attention after a video showing a group of  white supremacists giving him a savage beat down at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, has been charged with an alleged assault during that confrontation, police said Monday.

DeAndre Harris, who is Black, was seen bloodied in viral photos and a video after being attacked during the rally in August. He is now charged with unlawful wounding in relation to the incident where he was literally lynched by a horde of white supremacists, baying for blood.
Two of the assailants caught in video have been charged in the attack. Ironically, an arrest warrant has now been put out for Harris’ arrest, after one his attackers an  complained that he had been unjustly injured by Harris in the attack.
In the latest twist, it is alleged that an unnamed ‘victim’ went to the magistrate and complained about being beaten by Harris in the fight of one versus the mob.

The Charlottesville Police Department issued a statement on Monday, saying that the unnamed victim went to the magistrate’s office and complained of being beaten by Harris in the brawl.

DeAndre Harris, injuries 5You couldn’t make this up. A bloodied DeAndre Harris, seen here being led away after the mob attack, is the subject of an arrest warrant for maliciously wounding his horde of attackers in this same confrontation

Two men, 33-year-old Alex Michael Ramos and 18-year-old Daniel Borden were charged with malicious wounding in September in the attack against Harris., despite the video showing a sustained attack by more than two men.

DeAndre’s attorney, Merritt, said it was ‘highly unusual’ for a victim to go to the magistrate instead of the police, suggesting he tried and failed to convince cops to arrest Harris first.  The police don’t have sufficient probable cause to charge Harris, his lawyer said.
‘We find it highly offensive and upsetting, but what’s more jarring is that he’s been charged with the same crime as the men who attacked him,’ Merritt said.
Harris was left with a concussion, abrasions and contusions across his body, as well as a head laceration that required 10 staples, a knee injury and a fractured wrist after the clash, Merritt said.
Merritt said he is making arrangements with police for Harris to surrender.
