    Police in New Jersey have issued an arrest warrant for a white supremacist who made headlines for naming his children after Adolf Hitler and other members of the Nazi Party.

    Holland Township Police in Hunterdon County put out a social media plea for the arrest of Isidore "Heath" Campbell, 42, after an alleged assault. Police have not released details of the incident but said Campbell will be charged with aggravated assault.

    Campbell and then-wife Deborah Campbell gained national attention in December 2008 after a ShopRite supermarket in Greenwich Township, New Jersey, refused to write the name of their son – Adolf Hitler Campbell – on a cake for his third birthday. The couple complained the refusal constituted discrimination. A Pennsylvania Walmart store later made the "Hitler" birthday cake.

    In 2013, Campbell – dressed in Nazi uniform – marched into a New Jersey courthouse to petition a family court judge to allow him to see his youngest son. The New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services said they took the boy because of previous violence in the home.

    "I'm going to tell the judge, 'I love my children. I want to be a father; let me be it,'" Campbell told NBC10 before court proceedings. "Let me prove to the world that I am a good father."

    The father of four, who gave his children the Nazi-inspired names Adolf Hitler Campbell, JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell, Honzlynn Jeannie Campbell and Heinrich Hons Campbell, lost custody of his children but was given visitation rights.

    Police asked anyone who knows about Campbell's whereabouts to call 908-995-4670.
