Man wanted in gang beating of black man in Charlottesville busted in Arkansas

Suspect Jacob Goodwin, 22, was arrested Tuesday at 7:06 p.m. on a warrant issued by Virginia authorities for the racially-motivated August 12 beatdown of the outnumbered DeAndre Harris inside a parking garage.

Two other men were also charged in the assault.

Goodwin traveled from Arkansas to join the racist marchers massed in the Virginia college town. He is being held at the Lonoke County Detention Center until he can be extradited to Virginia.

DeAndre Harris, 20, needed eight staples to close a gash in his head after he was punched and pummeled with fists and a metal flagpole.

Goodwin's mother, Tamera Goodwin, confirmed that he was at the rally carrying a shield and wearing tactical military gear.

Counter-protester Heather Hyer, 32, was killed and 19 people injured when a neo-Nazi plowed his silver Dodge Challenge into a crowd of people.

An Arkansas man has been arrested in connection with an assault that occurred in Charlottesville on August 12.

On Monday, Harris was charged with felony unlawful wounding after Harold Ray Crews, a leader of the League of the South, a neo-Confederate group, accused Harris of starting the fight and obtained a warrant for his arrest from a Charlottesville magistrate.
