The 911 caller that reported George Floyd to authorities claimed he was drunk when he entered their shop, and also presumably attempted to pay with funny money.
Police launched the records of the telephone call made Monday evening around 8 PM by a worker at the Cup Foods … nearby where George was originally placed in manacles. The caller claimed, “Someone comes our store and give us fake bills and we realize it before he left the store, and we ran back outside, they was sitting on their car.”
The caller claimed they, along with a colleague, asked George to return some cigarettes, yet, “he doesn’t want to do that, and he’s sitting on his car cause he is awfully drunk and he’s not in control of himself.”
The communication in between the workers and also George showed up in the monitoring video footage from the dining establishment nearby from Cup Foods.
The driver after that obtained a summary of George and also heaven van where authorities located him when they showed up on the scene. Before hanging up, the driver asked once more if George was drunk, and also the caller claimed, “Something like that, yes. He is not acting right.”
As we reported, when authorities showed up … George remained in heaven van, yet showed up to quietly permit a police officer to place him in manacles. He revealed no indicators of withstanding apprehension … for greater than 6 mins. So, also if he was drunk, it had no noticeable effect on his behavior with police officers.
The deadly event really did not occur up until police officers strolled George nearby. We still have actually not seen any kind of video clip– authorities bodycam or otherwise– of the first minute when police officer Derek Chauvin positioned his knee on George Floyd’s neck … ultimately eliminating him.
