• Middleburg man found guilty for attacking man at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville

    Updated:

    A fourth man was found guilty for attacking a 20-year-old African-American man in a parking garage during the Unite the Right white nationalist rally in Charlottesville in 2017.

    According to The Washington Post, Tyler Davis, 50, of Middleburg, was once a member of a white nationalist group, the League of the South, but has since renounced white nationalism.

    Davis entered an Alford plea in Charlottesville Circuit Court on a malicious wounding charge. The plea acknowledged that prosecutors have enough evidence to convict him without admitting to the crime.

    During the hearing, the judge was told that Davis was seen on video hitting the man on the head with a wooden stick, which gave the man such a large laceration on his head that he needed eight staples, The Washington Post reported.
