Virginia Authorities Issue a Warrant for Deandre Harris, the Man Brutally Beaten at Charlottesville
Trigger Warning: Images and video of graphic violence included in this story.
The most striking image from the Charlottesville riots featured a young man named Deandre Harris. His head was tilted to the left; water was being squirted on his bloodied face.
Harris had just been beaten by a group of neo-Nazis at the “Unite the Right” rally. Now, more than two months after that incident, Charlottesville authorities have issued a warrant for his arrest.
Harris is wanted for unlawful wounding in connection with the events that occurred at a Charlottesville parking garage on August 12th.
Lt. Stephen Upman said that an unnamed alleged victim detailed the events that occurred prior to the beating of Harris. After an investigation the warrant was placed.
Harris' attorney, Lee Merritt, said that the charge was"clearly retaliatory."
