After a night of peaceful protests in Downtown Phoenix turned destructive on Saturday night, pro-football punter Marquette King brought people together to clean up the mess the next morning.

King is best known as an All-Pro punter for the then-Oakland Raiders from 2012 to 2017. He briefly played for the Denver Broncos in 2018 and most recently kicked for the XFL's St. Louis Battlehawks.

On Sunday morning, King sent out a tweet asking for people to join him helping to clean up the city.

"Since I'm a resident of AZ I'm gonna be in Downtown Phoenix around 10ish with gloves and trash bags cleaning up the city," King tweeted. "All races are welcome to come clean the city with me. Officers should come too."
