Police have arrested and charged a teen white supremacist for his part in the violent beating of a black man at the Charlottesville white supremacist “Unite The Right” rally.
Daniel Borden, 18, was arrested in connection with the attack on 20-year-old Deandre Harris, authorities said Saturday.
A cell phone video captured a group of white men savagely pounding on Harris with metal flag poles, umbrellas and plastic shields. Although other men were featured in the photo taken by photographer Zach Roberts, so far Borden is the only one that has been arrested. He is currently being held at the Hamilton County Justice Center in Ohio.
Harris told local news outlets doctors used eight staples to seal his head back together and that Borden and the others broke his wrist, chipped his tooth and busted his lip.
A classmate at his Ohio middle school told cops in 2012 that Borden once held a knife against his face, called him “Jew Boy” because he had a big nose, and often drew swastikas, according to WCPO-TV in Cincinnati. The classmate also reported to police that Borden had claimed to belong to a gang called Brothers of Confederacy.
