(Louisville, KY) Its been four months since the shooting death of Breonna Taylor. On Tuesday, some 90 demonstrators were arrested on the lawn of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s home in Louisville.
Among those arrested were two reality show stars. Porsha Williams from Bravo’s Housewives of Atlanta and Yandy Smith from VH1’s Love and Hip Hop New York.
Both Williams of Georgia and Smith of New York are charged with criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and intimidating a participant in a legal process. They are currently in Louisville Metro Corrections and their arraignment is scheduled for Wednesday morning.
Let me take you back to why the protesters came to the city. On March 13th just before 1:00 am on Springfield Drive, Breonna Taylor was shot multiple times after LMPD executed a no-knock search warrant. The 26 year old died from her injuries.
Protests started in Louisville on May 29th and they continue to this day.
The investigation is currently in its fourth month and is in the hands of the Kentucky Attorney General’s office and the FBI.
