George Floyd’s friend who was in the car with him on May 25, 2020 when they were confronted by police will appear in front of Judge Peter Cahill Tuesday morning to determine if he will testify in the trial of Derek Chauvin.

It is day seven of testimony in the trial of former Minneapolis Police officer Derek Chauvin, who has been charged in the death of George Floyd.

The chief said Chauvin's kneeling on Floyd's neck for nine minutes and 29 seconds is not a trained tactic and was a violation of the policies around de-escalation, objectively reasonable use of force and requirement to render aid.
