The leader of a black militia group (NFAC) is now behind bars, convicted for pointing a rifle at officers during a protest.
John Fitzgerald Johnson, who became known as Grandmaster Jay, leads the Not F**king Around Coalition (NFAC) and is a black separatist who wants the US Government to hand over land to African Americans so they can form their own government.
He was part of a group of armed protesters who gathered in Louisville to protest the killing of Breonna Taylor when the alleged incident occurred.
Officers who were conducting surveillance from a roof in the area were 'blinded by a light' that was later found to be a flashlight mounted to Johnson's 'AR platform style rifle,' according to the FBI.
The 57-year-old was arrested and appeared before a federal judge in Louisville Thursday. The charge has a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison.
Johnson has no prior convictions and reportedly had served in the US military during the 1990s.
