Footage from Los Angeles shows a man jumping on the hood of a police car before the cruiser drove away with the man still up against the dashboard.
The riot originally started as a protest on Saturday evening to commemorate the first anniversary of Breonna Taylor's death in her Louisville apartment during a drug raid. It was organized by the Youth Liberation Front, which has previously organized riots in Seattle and Portland.
The car's hood originally had two people on it, but one of them got off before the police car drove away.
Other people present at the riot could be seen chasing after the police car as it drove away from the scene. Towards the end of the video, a person on a bicycle could be seen attempting to catch up to the police vehicle.
The fate of the man on the hood of the police cruiser is not known.
Other footage from the evening depicts Antifa rioters smashing the windows of both large and small businesses, vandalizing private property, and blocking roads. Similar protests took place in Louisville, Seattle, and Portland the same night.
The protest comes one day after Breonna Taylor's former boyfriend Kenneth Walker, who was present in the apartment at the time of the raid, launched a federal lawsuit against the Louisville Metro Police Department.
Walker is accusing the police department of violating his fourth amendment rights by raiding his apartment. The fourth amendment protects Americans "against unreasonable searches and seizures."
Police raided Taylor's apartment while the two were sleeping together under the mistaken belief that Walker was running drugs through the apartment. Believing the raid to be a home invasion, Walker fired a single shot at police, injuring one officer with a shot to the leg. Police fired back in response, killing Breonna Taylor. Walker had also called police during the raid under the belief that it was a home invasion.
While the warrant obtained for the raid was a no-knock warrant, police were later instructed to knock and announce before the raid took place. Police claim that they announced themselves while Walker claims that if they did do see, he and Taylor did not hear them announce themselves.
Walker was originally charged with first-degree assault and attempted murder of a police officer, but the charges were later dropped. None of the officers involved in the raid have been charged in connection to Taylor's death.
