Former coworker says George Floyd knew Chauvin before the arrest and that they “bumped heads” in the past.

  • Floyd and Chauvin both worked security at a now protest-torched nightclub at the same time.
  • According to a former coworker, not only did they know each other, but they had a history of friction. “They bumped heads.”
  • “It had a lot to do with Derek being extremely aggressive within the club with some of the patrons, which was an issue.”
  • The Floyd family says they believe what happened on May 25 was in part personal. Their lawyer has called for Chauvin to be charged with first-degree murder, “because we believe he knew who George Floyd was.”
