Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills was one of 87 people arrested after a protest march to demand the arrest of the police officers involved in the killing of Breonna Taylor, according to Lucas Aulbach of The Louisville Courier Journal.
Stills was part of a group that marched to the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron to call for action against the officers involved in Taylor's killing on March 13. The march included over 100 people and began at Ballard High School in Louisville's East End in Louisville.
According to Aulbach, Stills was charged with intimidating a participant in the legal process, disorderly conduct, and criminal trespassing. Aulbach reported that Stills was taken into custody on Tuesday afternoon and entered into the jail's booking log before midnight. His arraignment was scheduled for 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.
According to Aulbach, the 86 others arrested have the same charges.
A police spokesman told Aulbach that the protesters were given a chance to leave and did not before being arrested.
Stills has been a vocal proponent of racial equality and social justice reform. He has been one of the players to kneel during the national anthem to protest social injustice and police brutality since 2016.
In 2018, Stills was nominated for the Walter Peyton Man of the Year award for his community activism.
