White man arrested after racist rant against black neighbour in New Jersey

A white man who was captured in a viral video harassing a Black neighbor and shouting racial slurs was arrested on Monday, authorities said.

Edward Cagney Mathews, 45, of Mount Laurel, New Jersey, was charged with harassment and bias intimidation after a woman accused him of “continually harassing” her, the police department said in a statement on Monday morning.

He was taken into custody on Monday evening after a large crowd of protesters gathered outside his home.

Footage showed Mathews repeatedly calling his neighbor the N-word and a “monkey” outside his home.
