A judge found DeAndre Harris, 20, was acting in self-defence when fights broke out at the protest last August in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Violent clashes erupted at the white nationalist rally to protest the removal of a Confederate statue.

A video of Mr Harris being attacked at the rally was widely shared online.

Footage of the scuffle showed at least five white men beating and kicking Mr Harris to the ground in an indoor car park next to the police station during the “Unite the Right” rally on 12 August.

Four of Mr Harris’s attackers were charged but one individual, Harold Crews, accused him of attacking him before the beating took place.
