California White Supremacist Arrested for Assault

  • September 1, 2005


The leader of a racist skinhead group has been arrested in Ventura, California, on suspicion of assault.

Ian Morrow, 36, was arrested on August 25 for his alleged role in beating an off-duty security guard at the Sans Souci bar in downtown Ventura five days earlier.  Racial remarks were directed at the Latino security guard and Morrow, one of several people involved in the skirmish, punched the guard in the face and head, according to authorities.  He was charged with assault by forceful means likely to produce great bodily injury and was released on $130,000 bond.

During a search of Morrow's home, police discovered white supremacist literature and paraphernalia, which was apparently part of Morrow's white supremacist internet business, White Devil Industries.  A leader with the Confederation of Racialist Working Class Skinheads, a racist skinhead group based in Ventura, Morrow sold racist t-shirts, stickers, patches and other items, which he apparently purchased from Panzerfaust Records before it went out of business.
