A white nationalist who tried to run for Senate in Florida and was a speaker at the deadly “Unite The Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia was arrested in Florida earlier this week, according to a new report.

The Associated Press reports that Augustus Sol Invictus, 36, was arrested on Monday and charged with kidnapping, domestic violence, and possession of a firearm during a crime of violence. He was arrested on a warrant issued out of South Carolina.

As the Miami Herald notes, Invictus campaigned as a libertarian during a 2016 Senate bid and headlined the Charlottesville rally. At the rally, a protester was killed when a white nationalist ran her over with his car.

During his unsuccessful Senate run, Invictus claimed that he drank the blood of a goat as part of a pagan ritual.

Twitter user @alexandria_jaye was first to report on Invictus’s arrest, the Miami Herald reports.

Invictus is scheduled to appear before a judge on Jan. 15, according to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office.
