MAUMEE, Ohio -- Fox 8 has obtained dash camera video of a May traffic stop here involving the suspect being held in a Virginia jail in connection with a deadly crash near a scheduled rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville, Virginia.
James Alex Fields Jr., 20, of Maumee, was pulled over by Maumee police on May 25, 2017 for a traffic violation.
The video shows Fields being pulled over in the same car he was driving this past weekend, when officials say he drove into a crowd of spectators.
"He used this car as a weapon," said Lt. David Tullis, of Maumee Police.
Fields was given a ticket for expired or unlawful plates. Court records show he was fined $150.
Fields is being held without bond on suspicion of second-degree murder, malicious wounding, and failure to stop in an accident that resulted in death.
