LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The second of 2 men accused of targeting an interracial couple in northern Arkansas with a Molotov cocktail will remain in custody while he faces charges of violating civil rights.
A federal judge in Little Rock said Friday that Gary Dodson is both a flight risk and a potential danger to the community as she denied bond for Dodson.
Authorities arrested Dodson and Jason Barnwell last week after they allegedly targeted a black man and a white woman with a Molotov cocktail in Hardy in January. Court documents claim that both men are admitted skinheads.
An affidavit alleges that Dodson drove a group of men to the couple's house, but that he did not actually throw a Molotov cocktail.
Dodson's attorney says he's considering appealing the judge's decision.
