All Protest Charges Dropped Against KY Lawmaker
By The Associated Press
LOUISVILLE - All charges have been dropped against Kentucky Rep. Attica Scott and others arrested during a protest against the decision not to indict the police officers who fatally shot Breonna Taylor.

Scott tweeted a picture of court documents Monday afternoon with a message announcing that every felony and misdemeanor charge had been dismissed.

Louisville Metro Police encountered more than a dozen protesters Sept. 24 shortly before the city’s 9 p.m. curfew during the protests for Taylor.

Scott and others were arrested as they were walking to a church that was providing refuge to protesters after curfew.

A felony rioting charge was dismissed Oct. 6.
