Superintendent Martin Kumer with the Albermarle-Charlottesville County Regional Jail said Fields is being held on suspicion of second-degree murder, malicious wounding and failure to stop, CNN reportes.

Police in Charlottesville, VA, have leveled murder charges on the driver of a auto who plowed his vehicle into counter-protestors during Saturday's violent white supremacist rallies, killing one woman and injuring many more.

Demonstrators are still staging rallies around the city, and reports say a auto crashed into a group of protesters.

A vehicle plowed into a crowd of people peacefully protesting a white nationalist rally Saturday in a Virginia college town, killing one person, hurting at least two dozen more and ratcheting up tension in an increasingly violent confrontation.

Saturday's Unite the Right demonstration was greenlighted by the authorities as a rally against the removal of confederate general Robert E. Lee monument from a local park.

Riot gear-clad police officers ordered protesters to disperse after clashes quickly escalated in the southern city's Emancipation Park.

After rally attendees and protesters dispersed, a vehicle rammed into a group of people Saturday afternoon.

"What the world saw today is not the place Charlottesville is", Thomas said of the violence that preceded the scheduled rally. Meanwhile, Virginia State Governor Terry R. McAuliffe put the blame on "white supremacists" and "Nazis" for provoking the unrest. White nationalists, also known as the alt-right, are a deplorable collection of neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klan members, white supremacists and other undesirables that love Donald Trump and promote white supremacy.

On Friday night hundreds marched through the University of Virginia campus holding torches in a scene reminiscent of Ku Klux Klan gatherings that haunted America's civil rights movement. "I told him to be careful".

The city has become ground zero for white nationalist and other protesters, who faced larger counter-rallies in the past.

Fields last voted in November, according to public records.
