MINNEAPOLIS — Jurors returned to the courtroom Friday morning to hear testimony from two more Minneapolis police officer in the murder trial of former officer Derek Chauvin.

On Thursday, a police supervisor told jurors that the officers who subdued George Floyd – who died after an officer knelt on his neck for more than nine minutes – could have stopped restraining tactics once Floyd stopped resisting.

“When Mr. Floyd was no longer offering up any resistance to the officers, they could have ended their restraint,” said David Pleoger, a sergeant who had authority to review use of force complaints in the precinct where Chauvin worked.

Chauvin is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Floyd, a Black man, died in police custody on May 25, 2020, after Chauvin, who is white, pinned his knee against Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes.
