Police in Louisville, Ky., arrested former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills during a protest for Breonna Taylor, the Courier Journal report on Wednesday.
Stills played four seasons with the Dolphins before the team traded him to the Houston Texans just before the 2019 season.
The Courier Journal reports police arrested the 28-year-old receiver and 86 others on felony charges for the protest. The group reportedly marched to the home of Daniel Cameron, the Kentucky Attorney General, where they demanded action against the officers who killed Taylor.
Taylor is the woman fatally shot eight times by officers on March 13. Police served a warrant at her home and used a battering ram to get through the door. The target of the raid happened to be a suspected drug dealer who police arrested on a separate warrant miles away that same night. Her killing sparked protests and a bill calling for the statewide ban of the controversial no-knock warrants.
One of the officers involved in the shooting, Brett Hankison, has since been fired from the department.
Stills, according to the Courier Journal, had a Wednesday morning court appearance on a felony charge of intimidating a participant in the legal process and a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct and criminal trespass.
Stills is considered one of the NFL’s outspoken advocates for social equality, inclusion, and mental health.
Just before his trade, Stills called out Dolphins owner Steve Ross on Twitter for hosting a fundraiser for President Trump’s re-election campaign.
