A man wanted in connection with a beating that took place two weeks ago in Charlottesville, Va., has turned himself in to authorities.

Alex Ramos, 33, surrendered to authorities in Forsyth, Ga., Monday evening. He has been charged with malicious wounding and has made his first appearance in court since his arrest, authorities said.

A video shared on Twitter captured the fight that broke out between protesters in Charlottesville on Aug. 12. In the video, protesters surrounded 20-year-old DeAndre Harris and stuck him with poles.

President Donald Trump opened his political rally in Phoenix on Tuesday with calls for unity and an assertion that "our movement is about love."

Then he erupted in anger.

He blamed the media for the widespread condemnation of his response to violence at a Charlottesville, Virginia, protest organized by white supremacists. And he shouted that he had "openly called for healing, unity and love" in the immediate aftermath of the tragedy and had simply been misrepresented in news coverage.
