James Alex Fields denied bail for allegedly crashing into Charlottesville protesters

Ohio resident James Alex Fields Jr. was denied bail during his first court appearance Monday for his alleged role in a fatal car crash in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend, according to multiple reports.

Fields, 20, has been accused of intentionally crashing his car into a group of counter-protesters at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville Saturday afternoon.

Fields was charged with second-degree murder and other counts, according to ABC-11. He is believed by authorities to have killed one woman and injured 19 other people.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Monday the incident may be treated as a case of domestic terrorism.
