Police investigating deadly Charlottesville car crash as homicide

Police in Charlottesville said they had arrested James Alex Fields over the death of a 32-year-old woman who was demonstrating against white nationalists who were protesting plans to remove the statue of a Confederate general on Saturday.

The driver in the fatal auto wreck in Charlottesville has been identified as James Alex Fields Jr., Colonel Martin Kumer confirmed to CBS News.

Fields, who police say was driving the vehicle, was taken into custody not far from the crash site.

He says a bond hearing is scheduled for Monday.

Authorities arrested a 20 year old man for allegedly plowing his auto into a crowd of protestors in Charlottesville, VA.

Sherman would have controlling interest but he would reportedly leave the baseball management to Jeter. Jeter, a 14-time All-Star shortstop, will be in charge of baseball operations.

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

Samantha Bloom, of OH, confirmed details about her son's auto and his trip to Virginia, saying she received a text from him last week that said he'd gotten some time off from work and was going to a rally.

Bloom became visibly upset as she learned that dozens of people were injured.

He also criticized law enforcement's response to the event, which was dispersed before speakers could take the stage. Corinne Geller, a Virignia State Police spokeswoman, said the pilot and a passenger were killed in the crash Saturday afternoon. The two were monitoring the white nationalist rally at the time.
