Suspect in auto attack at Virginia rally possibly identified

A 20-year-old man has been arrested in the USA state of Virginia, accused of driving his auto into a crowd of protesters and killing a woman.

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.

Authorities in Virginia said late Saturday that an OH man had been booked into jail on murder and other charges, but did not say whether he was the driver who plowed into a crowd of people protesting a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville.

Fields' last known address was Maumee, Ohio, the Washington Post said.

The vehicle seen in photographs running over protesters at a white-nationalist rally in Virginia on Saturday afternoon has an OH license plate.

The incident took place approximately two hours after violent clashes between white nationalists and counter-protesters caused authorities to declare the "Unite the Right" rally an unlawful assembly, The Associated Press reported.

The 32-year-old victim's identity has not yet been released.
