KEY POINTS

  • 87 protesters were arrested outside the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron demanding justice for Breonna Taylor
  • Among the protesters arrested was a member of the Houston Texans and two reality TV stars
  • Breonna Taylor's shooting is still under investigation by the Kentucky Attorney General's office

Eighty-seven protestors demanding charges against the police officers who shot Breonna Taylor were arrested Wednesday outside the home of Kentucky’s attorney general.

“Due to their refusal to leave the property and their attempts to influence the decision of the Attorney General with their actions, each person was charged with Intimidating a Participant in a Legal Process (Class D felony), Disorderly Conduct 2nd Degree (Class B misdemeanor), and Criminal Trespass 3rd Degree. (Violation)," the Louisville Metro Police Department said in a press release.

The protest began Tuesday when the group marched from Ballard High School in Louisville, Kentucky, to the home of the state's attorney general Daniel Cameron. A large group of the protesters staged a sit-in on Cameron’s lawn when police arrived and ordered the protesters off the lawn under threat of being arrested.

Taylor, a 26-year-old Black emergency medical technician, was fatally shot on March 13 by Louisville police after a no-knock search warrant by three officers.

Among the protesters arrested were Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Porsha Williams, and “Love and Hip Hop” star Yandi Smith.

In the aftermath of the protest, Cameron assured the public his office would continue its investigation into the shooting of Taylor during a no-knock warrant executed on her home as part of what was later found to be an unrelated narcotics investigation.

Cameron said the protests only served to hurt his office’s investigation.

“That is not acceptable and only serves to further division and tension within our community. Justice is not achieved by trespassing on private property, and it's not achieved through escalation,” Cameron said in a press release. “It's achieved by examining the facts in an impartial and unbiased manner. That is exactly what we are doing and will continue to do in this investigation.”
