James D. Reyerson of the Minnesota Bureau of Prison Apprehension testified on Wednesday, providing a view of the demise of George Floyd from an agent who was tasked with investigating it.
In testimony that revived questions on Mr. Floyd’s drug use, Mr. Reyerson, a particular agent, initially agreed with Derek Chauvin’s protection lawyer that Mr. Floyd appeared to have shouted “I ate too many medication” as he was handcuffed on the bottom.
However later, when questioned by a prosecutor and proven an extended video clip, Mr. Reyerson modified his conclusion, saying he thought Mr. Floyd had really shouted, “I ain’t do no medication.”
One other skilled, Sgt. Jody Stiger of the Los Angeles Police Division, stated in earlier testimony that it was unclear to him what Mr. Floyd had stated in that second, and the audio is tough to make out. Prosecutors have spent appreciable time throughout their presentation coping with the protection’s assertions that the fentanyl and methamphetamine present in Mr. Floyd’s system led to his demise.
Mr. Reyerson described his personal legislation enforcement profession, which included work for the Drug Enforcement Administration and the New York Police Division. He recounted the night time of Mr. Floyd’s demise, when he was referred to as to research and arrived at Minneapolis Metropolis Corridor with different brokers. He photographed Mr. Chauvin that night time, and commenced accumulating movies from the scene and the audio of a 911 name.
Mr. Reyerson stated his company had ready 440 experiences in the course of the course of the investigation of Mr. Floyd’s demise.
