The would-be family man is also a bona fide TV star after being featured in a Vice News documentary earlier this month.On Wednesday, Cantwell reportedly turned himself in to police in Virginia, where he was wanted on three felony charges stemming from his behavior at a torch ceremony the evening before the protest.A day later, on Thursday, Cantwell was denied bail, reports CNN.

Not because of what Cantwell says, but because of what he doesn't say. Relative to other Nazis, I mean."I talk a great deal about philosophical issues," he wrote in an archived profile.
I don't know what you'd expect a neo-Nazi's dating profile to look like. "Morality, politics, economics, religion, relationships and everything in between."That sounds more like a pretentious college freshman than the alt-right figure who told Vice that he wanted a president who is "a lot more racist than Donald Trump."Nowhere does he mention white nationalism, though he does gently describe himself as "jacked."If you'd like to see another Cantwell profile, you can check out the Southern Poverty Law Center's biography of the New Hampshire resident.
