Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who kneeled on George Floyd’s neck until he died, has been released from jail.
Chauvin was released from jail after posting a $1 million “non-cash bond” on Wednesday, Oct. 7.
The former cop posted a non-cash $1 million bond signed by A-Affordable Bail Bonds of Brainard, Minnesota around 10:34 a.m. Wednesday, FOX9 reports. He left the jail at 11:22 a.m. His current whereabouts are unknown.
Chauvin, who was arrested on May 31, had been held in segregation at the maximum security Oak Park Heights, Minnesota Prison where he was transferred following death threats from inmates at the county jail in Minneapolis.
Chauvin was charged in the death of Floyd, an unarmed Black man who is seen pleading for his life in a viral video. He was charged with second-degree manslaughter. Three other former officers who were at the scene were also arrested and have since been released.
All four are awaiting trial set for March 8, 2021.
