MINNEAPOLIS – Three former Minneapolis police officers involved in George Floyd’s arrest and death appeared in federal court Friday, following a grand jury indictment.
Thomas Lane, Tou Thao and J. Kueng appeared via videoconference in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis. The charges against them were not read in open court, but a grand jury was investigating whether they and former officer Derek Chauvin violated Floyd’s civil rights. Chauvin was not part of the court appearance.
Floyd died May 25 after Chauvin pressed a knee against his neck to hold him on the ground.
Chauvin was convicted last month on state charges of murder and manslaughter in Floyd’s death and is in Minnesota’s only maximum-security prison as he awaits sentencing.
