Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills is among 87 people facing felony charges after being arrested at a protest for Breonna Taylor in Louisville on Tuesday, according to court records accessed by Lucas Aulbach of Louisville Courier Journal.
Police took Stills into custody after he and other protesters marched to the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron to demand action against the officers involved in Taylor's death, Aulbach adds.
Stills was released from jail Wednesday morning, according to Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.
The 28-year-old was charged with intimidating a participant in the legal process, a felony, as well as misdemeanor disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing.
Stills' agent Ryan Williams criticized the arrest:
The charges against the protesters came "due to their refusal to leave the property and their attempts to influence the decision of the attorney general with their actions," Louisville Metro Police Department spokesperson Lamont Washington said in a statement.
Stills is one of the NFL's most vocal supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement.
The wideout spent four years with the Miami Dolphins before they traded him to the Texans prior to the 2019 season.
"We are aware of the situation and gathering more information," the Texans said about Stills' arrest, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.
