The organizer of the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, is wanted for arrest in Virginia after he allegedly doxed a counterprotester after the “Unite the Right” event.
Virginia resident Emily Gorcenski filed a misdemeanor complaint against Charlottesville organizer Jason Kessler on Monday for alleged “use of a person’s identity with the intent to coerce, intimidate, or harass,” the Daily Beast first reported.
I just filed a misdemeanor complaint against Jason Kessler and a warrant has been issued.

Kessler is accused of sharing Gorcenski’s personal information on Twitter under a separate account, @RealByzantium, that tweeted the name, address and a photograph of Gorcenski’s home after the pro-white demonstration.
Less than a week after the information was posted on the @RealByzantium account, an unknown person called 911, sending police to Gorcenski’s home on claims someone was brandishing a gun, a disruptive prank known as “swatting.”
The @RealByzantium account has previously been linked to Kessler’s private account from a retweet in September.
Kessler responded to the claims in a series of tweets accusing the Charlottesville magistrate of abusing his power.
This is not Kessler’s first run-in with law enforcement. A court recently convicted him of assault and he faces a felony charge for allegedly fabricating portions of his story, according to the Daily Beast.
