One of the four former Minneapolis police officers charged in George Floyd's death tried to warn his fellow officers during the arrest, his attorney claimed in court Thursday. The man, J. Alexander Kueng, hadn't yet completed his third full shift as a police officer when the deadly arrest occurred, his attorney, Tom Plunkett, claimed. Plunkett said Kueng told his fellow officers as they were detaining Floyd, "You shouldn't do that."

"What is my client supposed to do other than follow what the training o...

“If That $20 bill Was a Counterfeit, George Didn’t Know it!” Floyd’s Roommate Says

George Floyd's roommate has said that the $20 bill that instigated his arrest and his death may not have been a fake. He added that if it was, Floyd would have never intentionally used counterfeit cash. Floyd's roommate of four years, Alvin Manago, 55, told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview that Floyd was a stand-up guy and if he did use a counterfeit bill at the store before his death, it was "unintentional". He said: "I've never known Floyd to use any counterfeit money. If he tried to pass along a counterfeit $20 bill it was unintentional. He probably didn't know the money was fake. "I'm just not sure why the store employees didn't just tell him it was a fake $20. They all knew him then. He was a regular customer." Manago met George Floyd, 46, when they worked toget...
