Nearly 90 protesters were reportedly arrested and charged with felonies after refusing to leave a demonstration against the death of Breonna Taylorthat culminated outside the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron (R).
Demonstrators gathered outside Cameron's residence on Tuesday to demand that officials charge the three Louisville officers who were involved in Taylor's fatal shooting in March after police executed a no-knock search warrant at her apartment. More than 100 people, including NFL wide receiver Kenny Stills and Minneapolis NAACP President Leslie Redmond, walked to Cameron's home in Louisville in a protest organized by the social justice group Until Freedom, according to the Louisville Courier Journal.
A Louisville Metropolitan Police Department spokesperson told The Washington Post that Cameron called the police and asked that the demonstrators be removed after they gathered in his front yard.
After the protesters refused, officers arrested 87 people and charged them with a felony and two misdemeanors, the spokesperson added. Stills and Redmond were reportedly among those arrested.
