Kenny Stills’ agent blasts police after Tuesday arrest
Houston Texans wide receiver Kenny Stills was one of 87 protesters who were arrested and charged with multiple felonies in Louisville, and his agent had something to say about the NFL star’s arrest and detention.
In a tweet shared by NFL media’s Ian Rapoport, Stills’ agent Ryan Williams aired a few objective truths about his client’s current predicament especially put into context with the Breonna Taylor killing.
In the post originally seen on his Twitter account, Williams simply laid out the fact that Stills, who merely stood an a lawn while calling out justice, was arrested and has spent more time in jail than the police officers who broke into Breonna Taylor’s home and later killed her.

Williams, Kenny Stills, and everyone close to the situation have every right to be calling out the cops as his client’s actions were met with quick and strict punishment while Taylor’s killers were never even arrested.
Stills was part of a group of protesters who marched on the home of Kentucky’s Attorney General Daniel Cameron. Over a hundred protesters trooped for a local high school to Cameron’s home, demanding for the three Louisville police officers involved in Breonna Taylor’s murder be charged and arrested.
According to the arrest documents, the Texans wideout and his fellow protesters will face charges under the category of a felony (Class D), intimidating a participant in the legal process, misdemeanor second-degree disorderly conduct, and third-degree criminal trespassing.
A 2013 fifth-round pick, Stills is entering his eighth season in the NFL and second with the Texans.
