Henrico County, VA _  A Henrico County judge Thursday denied bond to a Hanover man accused of driving his pickup truck through a crowd of protesters on Lakeside Avenue June 7,  hitting a man on a bycicle.

Harry Rogers, 36, of Hanover, who had already been charged with attempted malicious wounding, destruction of property, and assault and battery charges, is now facing seven new counts.

Henrico Commonwealth's Attorney Shannon Taylor released a statement in a Tweet today, saying that she was also charging Rogers, who told police he was President of the Virginia Ku Klux Klan, with hate crimes.

 

 

Witnesses say the driver of the pickup revved its engine and drove on the median before driving through the protesters.  No one was seriously hurt.
