CHARLOTTESVILLE, [VA]--Three men have been charged with felonies in attacks on counterprotesters at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville earlier this month, Charlottesville police said late Saturday. One of the men has been identified as an imperial wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, and one of the men is still at large. Police said 18-year-old Daniel P. Borden of Mason, Ohio, is part of a group of six men who violently beat a man in a parking garage next to the Charlottesville Police Department on Aug. 12. That man, DeAndre Harris, suffered a broken wrist and a gash to his head that required 10 staples. The attack was captured on video. Another suspect, Richard W. Preston, 52, is allegedly the man seen on video shot by the American Civil Liberties Union taking out a pistol and firing a round toward a counterprotester who was wielding a flaming can of aerosol. He then turns and walks away. Preston has identified himself to news media as the imperial wizard of the Confederate White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, based in northern Maryland. View More>>
