Arrest warrant issued for Black victim brutally beaten at Charlottesville rally

Arrest warrant issued for Black victim brutally beaten at Charlottesville rally

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.

A 20-year-old black man who was rushed and brutally assaulted by a group of white supremacists in Charlottesville two months ago is now himself facing a felony charge.

A Charlottesville police detective verified the victim's story, and a warrant for unlawful wounding was issued.

In the days following the attack, two men were arrested and charged with malicious wounding: 18-year-old Daniel Borden, of Cincinnati, Ohio, and Alex Ramos, 33, of Marrietta, Georgia, according to WVIR-TV.

Lt. Stephen Upman says the alleged victim told the magistrate's office, a judicial office, what happened.

"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". Not only is [the victim] charged with a crime but he's charged at the same level as the men who broke his bones, who caused serious bodily injuries, caused him to get 18 staples in his head ... the men who beat him within an inch of his life.

According to reports, it is unusual for a warrant to be rendered by magistrates instead of the police themselves. Yet, the Charlottesville Police Department issued a warrant to arrest Harris on October 9.

Harris was attacked by a swarm of people in the Market Street Parking Garage, and several individuals have been charged in the beating. Photos and videos of his attack and a skirmish with others can be found online.

What was Harris's reaction to the warrant? He said the attackers also broke his wrist, chipped his tooth and split open his lip. He suffered a concussion, a gash on his head that required almost a dozen staples, and other injuries.

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.
