MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Wisconsin activist against police brutality is being held in Milwaukee County Jail after missing a court date in Kentucky.

Khalil Coleman, who organized marches against police brutality in Milwaukee last year, was arrested by U.S. Marshals and is being held in jail while he awaits extradition to Kentucky, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Coleman was arrested in February by the Elsmere Police Department in Kentucky for allegedly attempting to rob what police described as a “drug house.”

Coleman says he is “accused of a crime I did not commit.”
