He thanked the police and law enforcement officials, who he said had prevented "a much worse day", and praised the emergency services who helped the wounded. More protesters gathered to rally against the right-wing demonstrators.

James Fields, 20, was arrested after he ploughed his auto into a group gathered to protest a white supremacist rally in the university town, killing one and injuring at least nineteen others.

Charlottesville Police say the suspect, James Fields Jr., is being held on suspicion of second degree murder.

So far three people have died in the riots.

The vehicle ran into a group of people protesting against the white supremacist march, and the driver has been arrested, according to eye-witnesses said.


"So, after decades of White Americans being targeted for discriminated and anti-White hatred, we come together as a people, and you attack us?" he wrote.

A 20-year-old OH man is being held in connection to a crash that killed a counter protester at a white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Virginia today.

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) confirmed the casualties and delivered a simple message to white supremacists and Nazis: "Go home".

"We are stronger than you", the governor added. He said he was saddened that people were hurt.

Trump has been criticised for his response to the riot. People hit others with clubs and sprayed pepper spray during the event, which was protesting the renaming of city parks formerly named after Confederate generals and the impending removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. The two other victims were state troopers who were killed when the police helicopter they were in crashed. "We don't need that right now in this country", Walsh said of what happened in Virginia. His comments were criticised for not specifically denouncing the white supremacists while condemning the "display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides". He said they are not white supremacists and are only interested in free speech.
