LOUISVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18) — All charges against Attica Scott in connection to a September arrest while protesting police injustice in response to the killing of Breonna Taylor have been dropped, the state lawmaker said in a tweet Monday.
ALL CHARGES HAVE JUST BEEN DROPPED!— Attica Scott (@atticascott4ky) November 16, 2020
Thank you to all of our justice seekers, people who called, emailed and tagged the County Attorney on social media. You got it done!

Scott was arrested with others during a protest shortly before Louisville's 9 p.m. curfew on Sept. 24 near Louisville Free Public Library and First Unitarian Church at the intersection of South Fourth and York streets.
Her charges included felony rioting, unlawful assembly and failure to disperse.
Scott is the only Black woman in Kentucky's legislature and the sponsor of Breonna's Law, a bill that would ban the use of no-knock search warrants across Kentucky.
"Our work continues as we continue to seek justice for Breonna Taylor," Scott said in a tweet Monday.
