CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — A black man who was beaten at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, has turned himself in to police after being charged in the confrontation.

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

According to the warrant, the charge was sought by Harold Crews, state chairman of the North Carolina League of the South. Reached by phone this week, Crews said he will not be making any statements.

Police say Harris was released on unsecured bond.

Photos and video showed Harris being beaten by a group of men inside a parking garage. In addition to Harris, three men have been charged in the attack.

Harris' attorney has said Harris did nothing wrong.
