Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael, and William “Roddie” Bryan all face one count of “interference with rights and one count of attempted kidnapping.”

Travis and Gregory were also charged with one count each of using, carrying, —”and in Travis’s case, discharging—a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.”

The press release also states that the men “armed themselves with firearms, got into a truck, and chased Arbery through the public streets of the neighborhood while yelling at him, using their truck to cut off his route, and threatening him with firearms.”
