- 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.”
