Rapper YBN Cordae Arrested At Breonna Taylor Protest
Cordae wasn’t the only notable name placed into handcuffs. Trae Tha Truth, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams, Yandy Smith, Mysonne and activist Tamika Mallory were also reportedly arrested in the same sweep. Cordae was reportedly one of 87 people arrested during a Breonna Taylor protest in Louisville, Kentucky on Tuesday evening (July 14). According to WLKY-TV, the protest started at Ballard High School and continued to the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron.
According to TMZ, Williams was cited for criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and intimidating a participant in legal process.
“She has always been fearless,” Williams’ sister Lauren wrote about her arrest. “You mess with her people, you mess with her. She takes the case of #breonnataylor personally and she’s sacrificing work, time with her loved ones, and her comfort to make sure the offenders are held accountable for their actions. This is her passion, this is her purpose.”
In a viral clip, a man who looks like Cordae is seen being placed into handcuffs on Cameron’s front lawn.
“In total, 87 people were arrested,” the Louisville Metro Police Department said in a statement. “Due to their refusal to leave the property and their attempts to influence the decision of the Attorney General with their actions, each person was charged with Intimidating a Participant in a Legal Process (Class D felony), Disorderly Conduct 2nd Degree (Class B misdemeanor), and Criminal Trespass 3rd Degree. (Violation).”
