Three women were arrested after a severed pig’s head was left at the former California home of a witness who testified at the trial of Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd, according to police.
A group of people threw a pig’s head and splattered pig’s blood at Santa Rosa home on April 17 before running away, police said.
The home is the previous residence of Barry Brodd, a former Santa Rosa Police Department officer who testified in Chauvin’s defense, police said on Facebook. Brodd isn’t a California resident anymore and hasn’t lived there in years, so it “appears the victim was falsely targeted,” according to authorities.
Police said they arrested Rowan Dalbey, 20; Kristen Aumoithe, 34 and Amber Lucas, 35, all of Santa Rosa on May 11. The women were charged with conspiracy and felony counts of vandalism and booked into jail, according to police.

The women are also accused of splashing blood on a hand statue in front of the Santa Rosa Plaza mall, leaving a sign that read “oink oink” with a picture of a pig, police said.
