Chauvin's body camera video seen for first time during trial
MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - For the first time, the body camera footage from former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin of George Floyd's arrest has been shown.
Chauvin has been charged in connection to Floyd's death.
The prosecution showed the video Wednesday during the trial, marking the first time it has been seen by the jury and the public.
The body camera videos of the other officers charged in connection to Floyd's death -- Tou Thao, Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Kueng -- had been previously released to the public.
Chauvin's body camera video shows him arrive at 38th and Chicago. He gets out of the car to assist Lane and Kueng, who are attempting to put Floyd in a police squad car.
During the struggle, Chauvin's body camera falls off and lands underneath the squad car.
It's unclear when Chauvin put the body camera back on, but the court also showed footage of Chauvin speaking with a witness at the end of the incident. -- link to article --Witness in Chauvin trial breaks down in tears after watching Floyd arrest videoIn the video Chauvin can be heard saying in response, "We gotta control this guy because he's a sizable guy.
