A candlelight vigil was being held at the time, honoring Presley on the 39th anniversary of his premature death at age 42.
On Fox & Friends today, Presley’s step-brother, David Stanley, condemned the protests, saying the Black Lives Matter members “should be ashamed if they affected or shut [the vigil] down in any way.”
“You know what, [just] celebrate the life and times of Elvis Presley,” Stanley said.
According to Fox affiliate WHBQ, tensions were high during the protest, but there were no reports of violence. Those arrested were charged with criminal trespass.
