White nationalist Chris Cantwell, known for role in Charlottesville riots, arrested in Leesburg

Christopher Charles Cantwell, a self-described white nationalist and alt-right activist from New Hampshire, was arrested on March 31 in Leesburg for public swearing and intoxication, according to the Leesburg Police Department.

Leesburg Police Officers observed Cantwell trying to cross the street in the 500 block of Market Street. When they made contact with him, “he did show signs of drunkenness. He smelled of alcohol, couldn’t keep his balance,” Sam Shenouda of Leesburg Police told the Times-Mirror.

“At that point, we’re responsible for the person’s safety so he was taken into custody and held until sober,” said Shenouba.

Cantwell was later released on his own recognizance. Shenouda told the Times-Mirror there was no further investigation as to what he was doing in Leesburg. He also said that Cantwell was not investigated in relation to KKK literature that has been distributed throughout Loudoun County over the past year.

1. This arrest has changed the conditions of his bond

He is now monitored for alcohol.

See 4/26 post "Crying Nazi" Christopher Cantwell back in Charlottesville Area Court for details.

ETA: I see the OP link has cited the link in the 4/26 post.

I'm wondering about that clerical error.

2. Life can be difficult for stupid people.

Cantwell has made his life more difficult with his actions.

3. Hate is his forte in life.

I believe it trumps his stupidity.
