LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills was arrested in Louisville late Tuesday night after he participated in a protest over the death of Breonna Taylor.
Stills was among 87 people who were taken into custody after they marched to the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron.
Jail records show Stills was booked at 11:36 p.m. and charged with intimidating a participant in the legal process, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.
According to the Louisville Courier-Journal, a police spokesperson said all the protesters, including Stills, were given the chance to leave Cameron’s home before being arrested.
Protesters stood and chanted on Cameron’s lawn. The police spokesperson said they were charged “due to their refusal to leave the property and their attempts to influence the decision of the Attorney General with their actions.”
Cameron has faced criticism for not charging the officers involved in Taylor’s death.
Taylor, 26, was an emergency medical technician. She was shot eight times on March 13 in Louisville by plainclothes officers who were serving a no-knock search warrant for narcotics at her apartment. No drugs were found at the home.
Stills has a history of being outspoken on social justice issues. He participated in a march for Taylor in June at the Kentucky state capitol and attended George Floyd’s funeral in Houston.
The Texans wide receiver is entering his second season in Houston after he was traded from Miami. He has been in the NFL since 2013.
