NORTH VERNON, Ind. -- An Indiana man was arrested Thursday in connection with an alleged assault during the protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier this month.
Dennis L. Mothersbaugh, 37, was taken into custody shortly after 12:30 p.m. Thursday at his residence in Vernon, Indiana.
According to a release from the Jennings County Sheriff’s Department, deputies were contacted by Charlottesville officials and advised that an arrest warrant for Mothersbaugh had been changed to a full extradition warrant.
A video from the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally posted on Facebook by writer and civil rights activist Shaun King appears to show Mothersbaugh swinging at a counter-protestor and then punching a woman in the face.
