One of the organizers of the deadly rally in Charlottesville, Virginian has turned himself in to police.

White supremacist Chris Cantwell was prominently featured in a Vice News documentary about the protests.

"I'm not even saying we're nonviolent," the 36-year-old from Keene, New Hampshire said in the documentary. "I'm saying that f***ing we did not aggress. We did not initiate force against anybody. We're not nonviolent — we'll f***ing kill these people if we have to."

According to TMZ, he turned himself in Wednesday after the University of Virginia Police Department issued a warrant for his arrest for illegal use of tear gas and malicious bodily injury with a caustic substance.

Dozens were injured during the violent rally, and 32-year-old Heather Heyer was killed after a car driven by a white supremacist plowed through a crowd of counter protesters.

In the documentary, Cantwell said that the death of Heyer was "justified." Cantwell also spewed hatred toward Jews and African Americans and stated that "a lot more people are going to die before we're done here."

Earlier this month Cantwell posted a video of him crying after finding out that there was potentially a warrant out for his arrest.
