  • 3 men arrested in shooting after white nationalist Richard Spencer speech at UF

Universities in OH and Pennsylvania are facing legal pressure to accommodate white nationalist Richard Spencer following his speaking engagement this week at the University of Florida, his first on-campus appearance since participating in the deadly "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

MI attorney Kyle Bristow had been threatening to sue Ohio State and the University of Cincinnati on behalf of Padgett if they refused to rent space for Spencer to speak.

William and Colton Fears then yelled "I'm going to (expletive) kill you", and Tenbrink fired one shot at the victim, missing him and hitting a building.

Subsequently, Tenbrink fired one shot at the crowd and missed, hitting a business behind the victims and the three men got back into their vehicle and left the scene.

Police said all three face felony charges of attempted homicide. The three then allegedly got back into their Jeep and fled.

Another bystander said they memorized the license plate number of the vehicle and shared it with police. He is also being charged as a felon in possession of a firearm, police said.

Tenbrink admitted to the shooting once in custody.

The Alachua County Sheriff's Office located the vehicle about 20 miles north of Gainesville.

'It's always been socially acceptable to punch a Nazi, to attack people if they have right-wing political leanings, ' William Fears told The Gainesville Sun.

"For anyone who holds controversial viewpoints I think this is probably a little bit reassuring or at least should be that UF took more of the right steps in this situation", Kruth said.

The L.A. Times reported that Tenbrink was ordered to be held in lieu of a $3 million bond and the Fears brothers were held in lieu of $1 million bond each.

Tenbrink told the Sun that he traveled to Gainesville from Houston to see Spencer's speech.

Mr. Spencer, who helped organise a white supremacist rally that erupted in deadly violence in Charlottesville earlier this year, was shouted down by hundreds of protesters on Thursday.

The cost of security for Spencer's event was estimated by the University of Florida at $600,000.

Fears told the Sun that a man known for driving his auto into a crowd of people in the Charlottesville, Virginia, protests "wasn't unjustified".
