He's been jailed in Charlottesville since August 12th, the day the violent protests broke out. It began after a group of white nationalists held a rally against the city's plan to remove the statue of Confederate General Robert E Lee. Counter protestors showed up, and clashes soon followed. It was then that Fields allegedly drove his silver Dodge Challenger into a crowd of counter protestors killing Heather Heyer.
