Three men were arrested in connection with a neo-Nazi rally in Orlando’s Waterford Lakes area last month.

Joshua Terrell, Burt Colucci and Jason Brown were arrested over the weekend after they were filmed assaulting a Jew who confronted them at their hate rally. The man told police he was pepper sprayed and punched by the assembled members of the National Socialist Movement and had his phone stolen. Terrell and Colucci are charged with battery with enhanced hate crimes. Brown is charged with grand larceny.

Orange County Sheriff John Mina said his office “would not stand up for hate in our community” while announcing the arrests on Twitter.

The strong response from the OCSO underscores the reaction of other state officials. Governor Ron DeSantis danced to condemn the Nazis before turning his anger on Minnesota politician and conservative hate stick Ilhan Omar. DeSantis’ publicist spent the day after the rally speculating that the Nazis were paid actors sent to paint a bad light on Republican leadership.
