Scott reported that her and her daughter, along with other protesters, were sprayed with tear gas without warning by police during a peaceful protest. She is critical of Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear’s decision to send the Kentucky National Guard to Louisville to support Louisville Metro Police in controlling protesters.

Scott has called for Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer to resign because the citizens have lost confidence in his ability to address police brutality, and to hold Louisville police accountable in the shooting deaths of Breonna Taylor and David McAtee. On September 24, 2020, Scott was arrested on felony rioting charges and two misdemeanors in relation to the protests and rioting in Louisville during the aftermath of the Breonna Taylor grand jury decision.

Investigation report

Washington said library maintenance took care of the broken window Thursday night. In a statement posted to Facebook early Friday morning, members of the union that represents Louisville Free Public Library workers said, “We have seen no proof that the flare thrown into the library has done any major damage, nor that Representative Scott had anything to do with it, and find these accusations inconsistent with her character and the constant support we have received from her.”

Louisville Free Public Library spokesman Paul Burns said damage was minimal, but the main branch will be closed Friday. They hope to have the branch reopened Saturday. All other library locations are open for regular curbside services.

A lieutenant with LMPD told Kyle that police hoped to leave the area “as soon as possible” while officers investigated the fire at the library. According to Kyle, the lieutenant said police had no plans “to interface with people on their property.”

Washington said in a statement, “Contrary to rumors on social media, the LMPD, at no time, was waiting for ‘a decision from legal about whether or not they can storm the property.’ No arrests were made for being on church property. No National Guard was deployed to address these issues.”

Around 11 p.m., LMPD and protest organizers reached a compromise that allowed demonstrators to leave the church and disperse as long as they remained on sidewalks. The group dispersed without further incident, according to WDRB News reporters.
