Knoxville (WVLT) - The organizer of a racially-charged rally in Knoxville over the weekend is expected in court June Fourth for a bonded arraignment to face the charges against him.
Authorities arrested Alex Linder and are charging him with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, vandalism and assault on a police officer.
Saturday afternoon in Downtown Knoxville, white supremacists protested the January murders of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom.
All the accused killers in the case are black and the couple is white.
Police and the parents of the victims have said publicly the crime is not race-related.
