ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) -

A New Hampshire man involved in last summer's torch-lit rally at the University of Virginia is now in trouble in Northern Virginia.

Thirty-seven-year-old Christopher Charles Cantwell was arrested in Loudoun County on March 31 and charged with public swearing and intoxication.

He was released on his own recognizance.

Cantwell is out on a $25,000 bond after being charged with illegal use of tear gas. He is accused of spraying tear gas during a white nationalist rally at UVA on August 11, 2017, one day before the Unite the Right rally.

Albemarle County Commonwealth’s Attorney Robert Tracci says the Loudoun County charge could affect Cantwell's bond status.

Cantwell's bond is scheduled to be taken up in Albemarle Circuit Court on April 24.
