Police have arrested a Durham man who was charged last week in connection with protests of the Silent Sam statue at UNC-Chapel Hill.
Gregory Southall Williams was arrested for “wearing a mask/hood in the public ways,” according to a report from the Durham County Sheriff’s Office. Williams was released on a $500 secured bond. The charge is related to an anti-Klan rally that happened Aug. 18 in downtown Durham, said Maj. Paul Martin of the Durham Sheriff’s Office.
Last week, Williams was arrested on a charge of wearing a mask and disguise in public and also “resisting, obstructing and delaying arrest.”
