A third man was arrested in connection to the beating on Wednesday.

DeAndre Harris, 20, who is accused of unlawful wounding, was taken before a magistrate before being released on an unsecured bond. Merritt, his attorney, said Harris will not attend the hearing and that he is not willing to be interviewed by the media.

The attack also left him with a head laceration that required stitches.

Specialists had issued a warrant for Harris' capture on Monday, October 9, after a man recorded an accuse of malevolent injuring of the officer.

Harris was seen bloodied in viral photos and a video after being attacked during the white supremacist rally in August in a parking garage next to the Charlottesville Police Department. Harold Ray Crews, who identifies himself online as an attorney and "Southern Nationalist", has alleged that Harris injured him during the brawl.

The Yankees rallied from a 2-0 series deficit to beat the Indians in the best-of-five series with a 5-2 win Wednesday night . After being shut out in the first game in a 4-0 loss, the Yankees went into game two with an 8-3 lead after six innings.

Video of the incident appears to show a scuffle between the two in which Mr Harris swings a torch at a man identified by United States media as Mr Crews, who lunges at him with the pole of a Confederate flag.

DeAndre Harris, the 20-year-old black man beaten by white supremacists in a Charlottesville parking garage in August, turned himself in to authorities Thursday after being charged with a crime in connection to the attack.

The victim went to the magistrate's office, presented the facts of what occurred and attempted to obtain the warrant.

At the rally, 32-year-old Heather Heyer was killed when a vehicle struck a crowd of counter protesters.

The statue has since been covered up while a legal challenge to its removal is under way.
