Larry Gregory Has been arrested more than 50 times in Texas, Missouri and Florida.
A white supremacist accused of the brutal rape and beating of a teenage girl at a downtown waterfront park earlier this month was arrested in Suwannee County on Sunday, police said.
Larry Gregory, 37, left, was charged with sexual battery, according to online jail records. Suwannee County sheriff's officials could not be immediately reached for comment.
Police said Gregory and his 17-year-old victim went walking together on April 16. During the few hours they were together, police said Gregory walked to a store, stole some items and was caught on surveillance video. Later, when they were out of sight of some friends, police say Gregory severely beat her and raped her. She suffered serious injuries and feared for her life, police said.
Police say Gregory, who has a tattoo of the word "white" on one calf and "power" on the other calf, has been arrested more than 50 times in Texas, Missouri and Florida.
