The mother-of-one was joined by other notable names like Love & Hip-Hop star Yandy Smith and 2017 Women's March co-organizer/activist Tamika Mallory for a rally outside the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron.

A statement issued by Louisville Metro Police indicates protesters were "given the chance to leave" Cameron's home before being arrested.

After news of Stills' arrest circulated, many current and former National Football League players stood solidarity with Stills and called for the officers connected to Taylor's death to be arrested. That's according to the Louisville Courier Journal, which reported that Stills marched alongside dozens to demand action in the ongoing Breonna Taylor case. If convicted, the protesters could face a prison sentence of one to five years, according to Kentucky's sentencing guidelines.

The shooting set off weeks of protests, policy changes and a call for the officers who shot Taylor to be criminally charged. The warrant to search her home was in connection with a suspect who did not live there and no drugs were found inside.

One of three officers involved was sacked last month, and the two other officers have been placed on administrative leave. "We just want justice", Stills said on his Instagram account's live stream after his release. "We continue with a thorough and fair investigation, and today's events will not alter our pursuit of the truth".

Cameron said the protest won't bring justice and "only serves to further division and tension within our community".

Stills also was charged with misdemeanor disorderly conduct and criminal trespass.
