An Indiana-based neo-Nazi leader – who sued Donald Trump after being accused of pushing a woman on a 2016 campaign rally – are now faced with the cost of the battery and strangulation after the alleged ill-treatment of his wife’s stepfather.

The latest dispute allegedly stems from Matthew Heimbach’s alleged affair with the stepfather of the woman.

Heimbach, 26, was charged Tuesday with one count of battery, a misdemeanor, and a province of domestic battery, a misdemeanor, online court records show. He was reportedly arrested on preliminary charges of battery.

He is the leader of the Traditionalist Worker’s y, an organization considered a hate group because of its white supremacist rhetoric. Heimbach was an important figure in the promotion of deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., in August of last year.

The cost of the battery after a confusing love triangle went sour. Heimbach allegedly attacked his wife’s stepfather, Matt Parrott, after the stepfather confronted Heimbach about Heimbach alleged affair with the stepfather of the woman, a Louisville news station WHAS-TV reported.

Heimbach is married to Parrott former stepdaughter from another marriage.

The alleged sexual assault, Parrott served as a spokesman for the Traditionalist Worker’s y. He told the Daily Beast that the dispute was “white trash circus” and the group “no more.” The website of the group is no longer active.

According to a police report, Parrott – together with his former stepdaughter caught Heimbach and the stepfather of the wife having sex in a trailer. Heimbach allegedly choked the stepfather into unconsciousness.

Parrott called the police Tuesday to report the scuffle. In Heimbach’s home, a local police officer was said to have heard Heimbach telling his own wife, his own wife to “send the police away and tell them that everything is in order.” He was also heard yelling at her.

After the police arrived, the woman told an officer that Heimbach pushed her and grabbed her face – in front of the children. “Her cheeks were red around the mouth area,” read a report from an officer.

Heimbach is known for countersuing Trump last year after he was sued by a party other than an alleged attack on the Trump campaign rally. Heimbach claimed he attacked people on the basis of Trump’s order to remove “disruptive persons.”

But the arrest Tuesday can have serious consequences for a case in a Kentucky court, as Heimbach eventually pleaded guilty last year to charges of second-degree disorderly conduct on a 2016 Trump rally and was sentenced to 90 days in prison.

The punishment was remitted, but Heimbach was on a two-year probationary period.
