Jason Kessler, who organized the white nationalist rally in which one of the counter-protestors was killed and others injured when the driver of a car deliberately rammed into them, was mobbed by protesters and chased away during a press conference in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Sunday, NBC News footage showed.
As Kessler tried to hold the press conference, several hundred people shouted him down and one man approached the microphone shouting, “Indict for murder now.”
As Kessler fled the crowd, one of the mob members chasing him threw a punch at him. In the footage, Kessler is seen running away through bushes and trees in an attempt to get away, as the mob followed him.
Police tried to surround Kessler and protect him from the angry crowd, but the mob pushed through the police lines and continued chasing him before the troopers managed to lead him to safety, CBS News reported.
