A young African-American man, DeAndre Shakur Harris-a school teacher-got stomped by a gang of white supremacists in a parking garage during the Nazi Rally in Charlottesville.
The beating, which was captured on camera and quickly spiraled across the internet, occurred after a white supremacist tried to spear a counter-protester with a flag pole, the Washington Post reported in August.
The victim of the alleged attack attempted to obtain a warrant at the magistrate's office in person. According to a post on Roberts' social media dates October 9, he has yet to be "interviewed by Charlottesville police department or the FBI" regarding the brutal beating that he witnessed Harris take by the group of white supremacist. "A Charlottesville Police Department detective did respond, verified the facts and a warrant for Unlawful Wounding (Va Code 18.2-51) was issued".

Trump remarked last week that the current period may be the "calm before the storm". Trump concluded this screed with the declaration that "only one thing will work".
"We find it highly offensive and upsetting, but what's more jarring is that he's been charged with the same crime as the men who attacked him", Merritt told the newspaper. The magistrate issued the warrant Monday after consulting with police. "Every time I went to stand up I was knocked back down", Harris has said about the attack, according to BuzzFeed.
Harris was marching in opposition to the rally on August 12 when a scuffle broke out between a group of white supremacists and several counterprotesters at a downtown parking garage.
Harris told WRAL in Raleigh, North Carolina that doctors used eight staples to seal his head together after the attack. "I also have a laceration across my right eyebrow, abrasions on my knees & elbows, and a chipped tooth".
The attorney, who insists Harris did not start the fight, told the Post that Harris plans to turn himself in the coming days.
