New information has come out regarding the George Floyd case that could be devastating for the prosecution.
Before being held down on the ground, George Floyd alerted the police that he was becoming claustrophobic and couldn’t breathe, and two officers’ knees were on his stomach, leading to him being face-down on the pavement, prosecutors told the judge Friday.
Chauvin has been charged with third-degree murder in connection with Floyd’s death, according to the Hennepin County Attorney’s criminal complaint.
Officers approached Floyd, who was in the driver’s seat of a car parked around the corner, and Lane pulled his gun and asked the man to show his hands, the criminal complaint said.
Floyd initially cooperated but then “actively resisted being handcuffed,” the complaint said. But once “handcuffed, Mr. Floyd became compliant,” according to prosecutors.
And there is now released video showing Floyd pleading that he could not breathe BEFORE being put on the ground.
“While standing outside the car, Mr. Floyd began saying and repeating that he could not breathe,” the document said.
A medical examination found that Floyd had coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease.
