Alex Linder pleaded not guilty to all his charges. Those include: assault on a police officer, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and vandalism.
Linder is the leader who organized a rally in May protesting that the double murder of Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian isn't being considered a hate crime by local investigators.
Knoxville police say Linder entered the control access zone between both sides of the protest.
"They deprived everyone of basically a good time and they infringed my First Amendment right," Linder said.
