Dem Lawmaker who introduced “Breonna’s Law” arrested during Louisville Protests

Thursday, police arrested 24 amid chaotic protests over the Breonna Taylor jury ruling in Louisville.

One of these 24 was Kentucky State Rep. Attica Scott, a Democrat lawmaker who introduced the “Breonna’s law” legislation.

Scott was part of a group that the LMPD is accusing of causing damage at multiple locations, including setting fire to the main library branch.

According to WDRB “Scott, a Democrat from Louisville, and others were arrested near the main branch of the Louisville Free Public Library and First Unitarian Church at the intersection of South Fourth and York streets, according to Tracy Dotson, a spokesman for the union representing Louisville Metro Corrections.”

The report adds “Scott and her daughter, Ashanti, were charged with first-degree rioting, a Class D felony, failure to disperse and unlawful assembly, according to LMPD. They were both released from Metro Corrections on Friday morning on personal recognizance and have arraignment hearings scheduled for Oct. 6, according to online court records.”
