LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) — NFL wide receiver, Kenny Stills, was among nearly 100 people arrested during a protest outside Attorney General Daniel Cameron's home Tuesday.

Stills was arrested on charges of criminal trespassing, disorderly conduct and intimidating a witness. He was part of the group of organized protesters who marched to Cameron's newly-purchased home in the Graymoore-Devondale area Tuesday afternoon.

Stills plays for the Houston Texans.

Protests have been held for nearly four months following the death of 26-year-old Breonna Taylor. Taylor was shot dead when LMPD narcotics officers served a warrant at her home on March 13.

Recently, protesters have called for police reform, targeting local law enforcement, Attorney General Daniel Cameron, and Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer.

Stills, who is a seven-year NFL veteran, has been outspoken in his support of the Black Lives Matter Movement.
