The police arrested the suspect shortly after the car plowed through the crowd of Antifa protesters.
They’ve now identified the man.
From Fox News:
A 20-year-old Ohio man is accused of driving a car into a crowd of people protesting a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., killing a 32-year-old woman and injuring 19 others, police said late Saturday.
James Alex Fields Jr., 20, was booked into the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail on one count of second-degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding, and one count of failing to stop at an accident that resulted in a death.
The Washington Post reported that the silver 2010 Dodge Challenger involved in the crash was registered to Fields.
