Arrest Warrant Issued for White Nationalist Who Attended Charlottesville Rally

Va. Issues 4 Warrants on Christopher 'Nazi Crybaby' Cantwell

Va. Issues 4 Warrants on Christopher 'Nazi Crybaby' Cantwell

University of Virginia police said on August 22, that a warrant is out for the arrest of Christopher Cantwell on three felony charges stemming from events that took place on the campus August 11. Cantwell was one of the subjects of a Vice News documentary on the march at the University of Virginia and the ensuing violence during and after the Unite the Right rally on Saturday, Aug. 12.

James Alex Fields Jr., 20, is accused of ramming his vehicle into a group of counter-protesters that day, killing Heyer.

University of Virginia police have obtained arrest warrants for a white nationalist from New Hampshire in connection with crimes they said were committed on campus a day before a rally that ended in deadly violence. Cantwell was featured in Vice's infamous documentary about the events in Charlottesville, Virginia.

A total of four warrants have been issued for "illegal use of gases and injury by caustic agent or explosive", according to the Boston Globe. He adds that he has "no interest in violence or lawbreaking"-despite what he said in the Vice documentary-so he hopes that anyone who wants to contact him does it through the lawyer instead of by "harassing innocent people or wasting taxpayer resources".

Video circulating online shows Cantwell's emotional response over his possible arrest.

"Mr. Cantwell should turn himself in immediately to any police agency", the department said in a news release.

The self-proclaimed racist was shown several times in the documentary, at one point unloading his weapons, and later reacting to the news that a counter protester was killed by a white nationalist who rammed his vehicle into the crowd.

"I thought that spraying that guy was the least damaging thing I could do", he told the newspaper. While being interviewed by VICE correspondent Elle Reeve, Cantwell called Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Tamir Rice "little black a**hole (s) behaving like a savage (s)", made anti-Semitic comments toward Ivanka Trump's husband Jared Kushner, and said Heather Heyer's death was "justified". I don't want to, I don't think I should...

"The problem is that my country has descended to a point where your political opinions get you charged with felonies, and that's what I'm upset about", he said.
