NC man arrested amid effort to move Confederate monuments

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.

Police said he was arrested Sunday night.

Police said James was jailed in Wake County on a $55,000 secured bond.

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