Arkansan Charged In Virginia Beating

Jacob Goodwin

A Lonoke County man is the third person arrested in an attack on a black man that was recorded on video at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

22-year old Jacob Scott Goodwin, of Ward, was arrested Tuesday by the U.S. Marshals Service at a residence outside Austin in rural Lonoke County. Authorities say Goodwin was wanted on a felony charge of malicious wounding in Charlottesville.

The Washington Post reports Goodwin is allegedly one of at least five men who can be seen in online video footage pummeling DeAndre Harris, a 20-year-old former special-education instruction assistant, in a parking garage after the August 12th rally.

Charlottesville police asked the Marshals Service in Arkansas on October 4th for help finding Goodwin.

Goodwin is being held at the Lonoke County Detention Center until he is extradited to Virginia according to authorities.

Also arrested and charged with felony counts of malicious wounding are 18-year old Daniel Borden, of Ohio and 33-year old Alex Michael Ramos, of Georgia.
