A Virginia woman is saying on Friday that her son told her that he fought with the white supremacist that drove his car into a crowd of counter-protesters in Charlottesville in 2017.
The Associated Press reported on Friday that Lucinda Carter said her son, Timothy Brown, called her from jail in Charlottesville and told her he got in a fight with James Fields.
Fields has been charged with first-degree murder and other counts in the death of Heather Heyer, who was killed in the attack Aug. 12, 2017.
Col. Martin Kumer is superintendent of the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail. He told the AP that an investigation is ongoing and declined to provide details.
Carter said she expects her son to face charges. An attorney for Fields didn’t respond to a request for comment.
