Charlottesville murder suspect wanted to get lunch with fellow protesters before fatal crash.

Shortly before James Fields rammed his car into counterprotesters at a white nationalist rally, he had asked some of his fellow protesters out to lunch.

Hayden Calhoun and his girlfriend declined, Calhoun testified Wednesday.

Twenty minutes later, Fields plowed into the counterprotesters, killing a 32-year-old woman and injuring more than a dozen others.

Those were some of the latest revelations from Fields' murder trial Wednesday. The 21-year-old is charged with first-degree murder for the death of Heather Heyer, who was protesting against last year's "Unite the Right" rally.

Both the prosecution and defense agree that Fields drove into the crowd of counterprotesters. But while the prosecution believes Fields had malicious intent, the suspect's defense team said he feared the counterprotesters and acted in self-defense.


Oh bullshit! They showed him revving the engine of his car before he drove into the crowd. They were nowhere near him.
