White supremacist Chris Cantwell’s violent racism has finally landed him behind bars.
Cantwell’s bigotry and toxic masculinity were featured prominently in a Vice documentary about the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville.
Last week, a video went viral showing Cantwell in tears over discovering there was a warrant out for his arrest. He probably didn’t like being banned for life from OKCupid either.
Turns out, things were even worse than they seemed. There were actually four warrants related to Cantwell’s alleged “illegal use of gases, and injury by caustic agent or explosive.”
Cantwell finally turned himself in to the Lynchburg Police in Virginia. He’s now being held at Blue Ridge Regional Jail.
