Federal authorities arrested the leader and two members of a white supremacist group for organizing and participating in riots.
Robert Rundo, the leader of the Rise Above Movement, was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday.
Michael Miselis, a former UCLA aerospace engineering doctoral student, was a member of the group and was arrested three weeks ago for inciting a riot and committing violence in Charlottesville, Virginia last year.
ProPublica and Frontline found a video of Miselis beating an unidentified African-American man at the Charlottesville “Unite the Right” rally in August 2017.
Rundo was denied bail Wednesday. The judge in the case called Rundo a flight risk, as Rundo has taken several trips abroad and was picked up in Central America leading up to his arrest.
