Police have named the 20-year-old man who drove into a crowd of people in Charlottesville, Va., Saturday, killing one and injuring 19 following a white supremacist rally.
Col. Martin Kumer, superintendent of the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail, said Fields was in custody there Saturday night.
He says a bond hearing is scheduled for Monday.
Authorities says a 32-year-old woman died and 19 others were injured in the incident.
White supremacists had targeted Charlottesville because the town had taken down a statue of Robert E. Lee, the New York Times reported. On Saturday afternoon, a Virginia State Police helicopter assisting in monitoring the protests crashed in Albermarle County. After marchers clashed with counter-protesters (mainly anitfa), police ruled the nightly demonstration an unlawful assembly, and broke it up.
In response to the rally, Governor Terry McAuliffe said, "I want to urge my fellow Virginians who may consider joining either in support or opposition to the planned rally to make alternative plans".
The Associated Press reported that the driver has been arrested.
Former Klan Imperial Wizard David Duke attended the rally as well as other prominent white nationalist leaders.
She said her son hadn't given her any details about the rally but that she told him "to be careful" and to peaceful. He said he thinks removing the statue amounts to erasing history and said the "counter-protesters are crazier than the alt-right".
One death has been confirmed after a vehicle ran into a crowd during the rally.
Thomas said that they are treating this as a criminal homicide investigation.
