RALEIGH, NC (AP) — North Carolina State Capitol Police have arrested a man they say is suspected of starting a riot days earlier that led to a pair of damaged Confederate monuments on the old Capitol grounds.

Police said Conrad Paul James was charged with inciting a riot, first-degree trespass, resisting an officer and injury to personal property, for events covering two nights.

A jail official didn’t have any information late Monday about whether James has an attorney.
