Police Bodycam Footage Shows George Floyd Resisted Arrest For Over 8 Minutes And 22 Seconds

Bodycam footage of George Floyd’s arrest by Minneapolis police — which has been hidden from the public by Minneapolis Attorney General Keith Ellison for over 2 months — was just leaked to the Daily Mail and it shows Floyd resisted arrest for over 8 minutes and 22 seconds, asked to be put on the ground and lied to police about not being high on drugs.


Floyd, who was placed under arrest for using a counterfeit bill to defraud a local small business, is seen sitting comfortably in the driver’s seat of his Mercedes SUV and immediately after police knock on his window he’s heard protesting, “I didn’t do nothing!”

Floyd refused to show both hands to arresting officer Thomas Lane and begged him not to shoot him after he raised a gun to him. Officer Lane is heard saying he’s not going to shoot him while ordering him repeatedly to show his hands.

The video shows Floyd, 46, started crying almost immediately and fought with every one of the police’s requests.

Floyd is seen falsely claiming he wasn’t on any drugs despite the official autopsy showing he had enough fentanyl in his system to kill a person (as well as a host of heart conditions, including “severe” and multifocal arteriosclerotic heart disease, hypertensive heart disease, an enlarged heart and clinical history of hypertension) and also had methamphetamine in his system, THC from marijuana in addition to cotinine from cigarettes and caffeine.
