Authorities say a third person has been arrested in the beating of a black man at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Lt. Matthew Edwards is spokesman for the Lonoke County Sheriff's Office in Arkansas. He said in a phone interview that 22-year-old Jacob Scott Goodwin of Ward, Arkansas, was arrested Tuesday on a warrant from Charlottesville by U.S. marshals near his hometown.
Lt. Steve Upman, a spokesman for police in Charlottesville, says Goodwin is charged with malicious wounding in the Aug. 12 beating.
Video of the rally shows several men beating 20-year-old DeAndre Harris.
Two other men were also charged in the assault. They are being held in Virginia.
