DeAndre Shakur Harris

DeAndre Shakur Harris

The charge against Harris alleges that he wounded Crews shortly before Harris was beaten, in the vicinity of the same parking garage.

Another individual alleged that Mr Harris attacked him, prompting the warrant on Tuesday. Harris' attorney, S. Lee Merritt, said Harris was left with a concussion, abrasions and contusions across his body, as well as a knee injury, a fractured wrist and a head laceration that required staples after the clash. In addition to Harris, three men have been charged in the attack.

Video of the incident appears to show a scuffle between the two in which Mr Harris swings a torch at a man identified by U.S. media as Mr Crews, who lunges at him with the pole of a Confederate flag. Harold Ray Crews, who identifies himself online as an attorney and "Southern Nationalist", has alleged that Harris injured him during the brawl.

Charlottesville police said in a statement that 20-year-old DeAndre Harris turned himself in Thursday morning and was served a warrant charging him with unlawful wounding.

The victim reportedly went to the magistrate's office to try and obtain the warrant against Harris after presenting officials with his account of what happened during the incident.
