Activist Women Charged, Arrested for Leaving Pig’s Head at Former Home of Chauvin Witness

Three women were arrested and charged with vandalizing the former California home of the police expert who testified for the defense in the Derek Chauvin trial.

Amber Lucas, 35, Rowan Dalbey, 20, and Kristen Aumoithe, 34, were charged this week with one count of conspiracy and two counts of felony vandalism after they  smeared pig’s blood and left a severed pig’s head outside the former Santa Rosa home of Barry Brodd, NBC Bay Area reported.

They were all cited and released.

“It appears the suspects in this vandalism were targeting Mr. Brodd for his testimony,” police said at the time. “Mr. Brodd has not lived at the residence for a number of years and is no longer a resident of California.”

According to Breitbart, Brodd retired from the Santa Rosa Police Department and now works as a use-of-force expert. He testified during Chauvin’s trial that the former Minneapolis officer’s actions were within standard police protocols.

Chauvin was convicted of second-and-third-degree murder, as well as second-degree manslaughter.

Police said they believe there were additional suspects involved in the pig’s head vandalism, and are asking the community for more information that could lead to their arrest.

Lucas, who is a lifestyle and wine influencer, and a commissioner for the Commission on the Status of Women in Sonoma County is also a Black Lives Matter activist who attended protests in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death, the Daily Mail reported.
