Heimbach, who lives in Paoli, is the chairman of the Traditionalist Worker Party, which has been identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a hate group. He was instrumental in promoting the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Va., last August.

Matthew Heimbach was ordered to serve 38 days in jail for violating the terms of his two-year probation for the Trump rally incident. The 27-year-old Heimbach appeared Tuesday in misdemeanor court in Louisville and was led away in handcuffs.

Heimbach was arrested in Paoli, in March on battery charges for allegedly assaulting his wife's stepfather, David Matthew Parrott. The men had argued over Heimbach's alleged affair with Parrott's wife, according to court documents.
