Durham County jail records show three more people have been charged with toppling a Cofederate statue in Durham.

Three more people have been charged with toppling a Confederate statue in North Carolina earlier this month.

An attorney representing the three, Scott Holmes, declined to comment on their arrests.

Eight others had already been arrested previously on similar charges of tearing down the Confederate statue in front of a government building in Durham. The bronze soldier was pulled down Aug. 14 by protesters who climbed a ladder and attached a rope.

The toppling came in the aftermath of a white nationalist rally in Virginia that turned deadly.
