Hate Crime Fugitive Arrested by U.S. Marshals in Edgewater
A spokesman for the U.S. Marshals said the fugitive is part of the Arian Nation.
U.S. Marshals arrested a fugitive in Edgewater on Wednesday for violating his probation related to a conviction for a hate crime as well as weapon and drug possession charges, according to a U.S. Marshals spokesman and criminal investigator David Neumann.
Neumann called Dawson "a fugitive" and said he was convicted of simple assault and a hate crime from an incident in Washington DC.
"[Dawson] pulled a knife on a civilian in [Washington, DC], a cab driver, and told him, 'I'm going to kill you. I already killed your brother,'" Neumann said.
Neumann also said that Dawson is a member of the Arian Nation, a white supremecist organization.
A Special Response Team assisted in Dawson's arrest because of the possibility that Dawson may have had weapons in his possession, Neumann said.
