Aaron Eason Arrested For Allegedly Inciting Violence In California, Charlottesville

The suspected white supremacist, 38, is charged with traveling to incite or participate in riots.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say they have arrested a fourth member of a white supremacist group on charges of inciting violence at California protests and at last year’s deadly riot in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The FBI said in a Tweet on Sunday that 38-year-old Aaron Eason surrendered himself. He has an initial court appearance Monday.

Prosecutors say the group’s leader and two other members were arrested last week.

All four are charged with traveling to incite or participate in riots. Rise Above Movement leader Robert Rundo, Robert Boman and Tyler Laube were each denied bail in Los Angeles federal court on Wednesday.

Attorney information for the defendants could not immediately be found.

The latest arrests come just weeks after the indictments of four other California members of RAM for allegedly inciting the Virginia riot.
