Derek Chauvin, the officer who is seen on a bystander's cellphone video kneeling on George Floyd's neck on Monday before he died, has been charged with third-degree murder, Mike Freeman, Hennepin County attorney, told a news briefing.
"He is in custody and has been charged with murder," Freeman said of Chauvin, who is white.
"We have evidence, we have the citizen's video, the horrible, horrific, terrible thing we've seen over and over again."
