A Kentucky lawmaker who proposed a statewide law to end "no-knock" search warrants was arrested during protests in Louisville on Thursday night, CBS affiliate WLKY confirmed.

Taylor, a 26-year-old emergency medical technician, was killed by police during a drug raid on her home in March.

In June, the city of Louisville passed a ban on "no-knock" warrants like the one that police had obtained before entering Taylor's home.

Dubbed Breonna's Law, the legislation also requires police to wear body cameras while executing search warrants.

The arrest report alleges that she "caused damage at multiple locations, including setting fire to the Louisville Public Library.".

Police said at least 24 people were arrested for charges including unlawful assembly, failure to disperse and riot in the first degree.

My Shero, riding partner, and colleague in the State House, the sponsor of Breonna's Law, was one of the people arrested. »
