Friday evening came the arrest of Daniel Borden, another man who participated in the beating of Harris. He was charged and arrested with malicious wounding.
Following the attack, Harris had recounted the altercation on a GoFundMe page to raise money for the surgery he had to have:
I was brutally attacked by white supremacists in the parking garage right beside the Charlottesville Police Station. I was chased and beat with metal poles. I was knocked unconscious repeatedly. Every time I went to stand up I was knocked back down…I was diagnosed with a concussion, an ulnar fracture, and had to receive eight staples in my head. I also have a laceration across my right eyebrow, abrasions on my knees & elbows, and a chipped tooth.
