LOUISVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18)– An alleged white supremacist has been released from from jail after serving a sentence for violating his probation.

Matthew Heimbach was released from jail Saturday according to the Louisville Metro Department of Corrections.

Heimbach was placed on probation in 2016 for harassing an African-American woman at a Donald Trump rally. 

Last month he was sentenced to 38 days in jail for violating that probation.

Court documents show Heimbach was arrested in Indiana on domestic abuse charges.

Heimbach is the leader of the white nationalist Traditionalist Worker Party.
