Woman charged in attack of Charlottesville rally organizer


A fourth person has been arrested on a charge of assaulting an organizer of the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Police said Wednesday that 35-year-old Phoebe LaFroy Stevens turned herself in on Tuesday. Two other men were arrested over the weekend on charges of assaulting Unite the Right organizer Jason Kessler, who was mobbed after he tried to hold a news conference the day after violence erupted in Charlottesville.

Another man was accused of spitting on Kessler and immediately charged with misdemeanor assault.

Charlottesville police Lt. Steve Upman said in an email that at least 14 people have been arrested in connection to the rallies and protests that weekend. The charges range from second-degree murder to malicious wounding to failure to disperse in a riot.

    Violence is wrong, no matter which side it comes from
    But this was after the brutal car attack, and the murder of the young woman.
    Tempers were running high.

    It would be an honor to be arrested for spitting on this evil scum.

    I believe in freedom of speech even if I loathe the opinions expressed.
    I do not believe in the freedom of people to beat up those whose opinions they loathe.

    I'm guessing these people were surprised to find out that it's still illegal to assault someone even if they are complete scum.
