image for Derek Chauvin's former supervisor testifies his restraint of George Floyd violated use-of-force policies

A former supervisor of the fired Minneapolis police officer charged in George Floyd's death testified Thursday that the officer violated police use-of-force policies in his restraint of Floyd last May.

Chauvin's attorney, Eric Nelson, objected, arguing that Pleoger had reviewed only the police officers' body camera video.

The judge, Peter Cahill, then ordered the jury out of the courtroom, and the lawyers argued over whether there was a foundation for the question.

Pleoger responded: "When Mr. Floyd was no longer offering up any resistance to the officers, they could have ended their restraint.".

The question speaks directly to whether Chauvin violated police use-of-force policies, which is at the heart of the prosecution's case.

"You can call me a snitch if you want to," Scurry told Pleoger, according to audio of the call.

A 911 call from a clerk at the store touched off the fatal confrontation between police and Floyd. »
