A group of six men violently beat DeAndre Harris, a counterprotester, in a parking garage next to the Charlottesville Police Department on August 12 after a white nationalist rally was dispersed by police.

In this Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017 photo, DeAndre Harris, bottom is assaulted in a parking garage beside the Charlottesville police station after a white nationalist rally was disbursed by police, in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Lt. Stephen Upman said that an unnamed alleged victim detailed the events that occurred prior to the beating of Harris.

Harris' lawyer, Lee Merritt, told WCPO the charge was a "clearly retaliatory" effort by white supremacists after Harris used social media to help identify suspects in the beating. He continued to say it's "highly unusual" that the charge came from a Magistrate and not the police, and also said the accuser tried to implicate Harris prior. "Every time I went to stand up I was knocked back down", Harris has said about the attack, according to BuzzFeed.

Vegas shooting leads Chicago Marathon to increase security
Further information about Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock is slowly coming out in the days since the deadly shooting Sunday. Investigators say they now do not have information which links Paddock to more assailants.

After news broke of the arrest warrant against Harris on Monday, white nationalists openly celebrated on Twitter.

"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", he said, adding that his client would turn himself into police in the coming days.

White supremacist Borden, hours before attacking Harris, threw the metal-tipped wood at photographer Roberts' head. "A Charlottesville Police Department detective did respond, verified the facts and a warrant for Unlawful Wounding (Va Code 18.2-51) was issued". Both were charged with malicious wounding, a felony. Harris incurred injuries that required him to have eight staples into his head. He also suffered a broken wrist and a chipped tooth. "There were some non-racist members who were going to a free speech rally". At a court hearing for Ramos last month, his attorney reportedly said it may have been Harris who "struck the first blow in that fracas".
