Charlottesville Police Charge DeAndre Harris with Unlawful Wounding

Court records show the complaint against Harris was filed by Harold Ray Crews, who is identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as chairman of the North Carolina League of States, a white nationalist group.

Mr Harris's lawyer, S Lee Merritt, said his client did nothing wrong and authorities did not have probable cause to prosecute him.

A third man was arrested in connection to the beating on Wednesday.

The Charlottesville Police Department issued a statement on Monday, saying that the unnamed victim went to the magistrate's office and complained of being beaten by Harris in the brawl. He was served the warrant charging him with unlawful wounding. His head wound is pictured left.

"We find it highly offensive and upsetting", Mr Merritt told the Washington Post newspaper, "but what's more jarring is that he's been charged with the same crime as the men who attacked him".

Three men - Alex Michael Ramos, Daniel Patrick Borden, and Jacob Scott Goodwin - are blamed for assaulting Harris inside the Market Street Parking Garage on Saturday, August 12.

Online footage shows Crews trying to spear another counterprotester with the pole of a Confederate flag, prompting Harris to fight back.

Daniel Borden, 18, of OH, and Alex Michael Ramos, 33, of Georgia, were also charged with malicious wounding last month in connection with the attack.
