By  | 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A man convicted of using a homemade flamethrower against white nationalists on Aug. 12, 2017 has now dropped an appeal.

Corey Long was convicted in June of disorderly conduct.

During this trial, witnesses said he was called a racial slur by Richard Preston, who was convicted of firing a shot near Long.

Long announced he would appeal a few days after his conviction, but he dropped that appeal on Thursday.

He will serve 20 days in jail.
