Arrests Made as Protesters and Police Clash

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — It’s been more than two days since Attorney General Daniel Cameron announced that none of the officers involved in the death of Breonna Taylor would face charges directly tied to her death. Since the announcement, protests have ensued each night and continue into Friday evening. 

Protests remained relatively peaceful Thursday evening. According to the Louisville Metro Police Department, a total of 26 were arrested, most being charged with unlawful assembly, failure to disperse and/or first-degree rioting. 

More about Thursday’s protests can be found on our Thursday evening blog. You can also find more about the events that have unfolded Friday, including statements from Taylor’s family and their attorneys, on our Friday morning blog.

8:29 pm — From LMPD: About 7 p.m. protestors who had marched from Jefferson Square Park to the NuLu neighborhood on Main Street were asked to move to the sidewalks multiple times to allow for traffic to flow. When that did not occur, an unlawful assembly was declared. Two flashbang rounds were deployed in the air above the crowd to get the crowd’s attention, at which time directions were given for the crowd to disperse and move east. Crowds did begin to disperse, with many walking back to the park. Two people were arrested. Information on charges is not immediately available.
