A federal grand jury has indicted Derek Chauvin and the other three Minneapolis police officers involved in George Floyd’s fatal arrest last spring, charging them with violating the Black man’s civil rights, according to an indictment unsealed Friday.
The indictment names Chauvin, Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao, all of whom were fired a day after the killing. It says Chauvin, Lane and Kueng — the three cops who pinned Floyd to the ground for more than nine minutes — violated Floyd’s right to be free from excessive force and unreasonable seizure. All four are also accused of failing to provide him with medical care during the May 25, 2020 incident.
