Four men associated with the white supremacist "Rise Above Movement" have been arrested on federal conspiracy charges for their actions during last August's Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, reports HuffPost.

The details: Benjamin Drake Daley, Cole Evan White, Michael Paul Miselis and Thomas Walter Gillen were identified in video footage committing acts of violence against counter-protesters during the rally. The charges are not directly related to the death of Heather Heyer, who was killed when James Alex Fields Jr. — who has since been charged with federal hate crimes — drove a car into a crowd of protesters.
