A professor at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill and Antifa ringleader has been charged in the assault of Big League Politics editor-in-chief Patrick Howley according to an official report.
Dwayne Dixon, 46, of Durham was served a summons last week to appear before a judge on September 27.
A case detail form shows that Dixon has been charged and arraigned with Simple Assault.
Arrest report shows that Dixon is accused of assaulting Howley a 1 McCorkle Place, the location of the Silent Sam statue at UNC.
He will appear in Hillsborough District Court to answer for himself later this month.
Dixon is a longtime ringleader of Antifa in the southeast, and has admitted to chasing James Fields with a rifle before Fields plowed into Heather Heyer at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, VA in 2017.
He teaches at UNC when he is not busy causing trouble in the streets.
Howley was reporting on the Antifa riots at the Silent Sam statue on the UNC Campus when he was allegedly assaulted by Dixon. Howley caught the incident on video.
CHAPEL HILL — Current University of North Carolina cultural anthropology professor Dwayne Dixon assaulted me, Patrick Howley, editor of Big League Politics, at the Monday night rally on campus grounds that led to the tearing down of the “Silent Sam” statue erected in 1913 to commemorate North Carolinians who died fighting for the Confederacy.
Dixon is a leader of the left-wing Redneck Revolt militia group and the undisputed leader of the rally at the University of North Carolina, which drew Antifa militants from around the region. Antifa insurgents tore down the statue and committed numerous assaults that were reported and also captured on tape.
