The attorney for former Minneapolis police officer Thomas Lane, who was charged with the death of George Floyd last May, is asking the court to allow a body camera video of a previous arrest with Floyd.
According to transcripts from the WCCO, Floyd was the passenger in an unlicensed vehicle stopped by Minneapolis PD. After being asked to loosen his seat belt three times, Floyd says, "Don't shoot me, man."
Floyd is then asked several times, according to the transcripts, to put his hands on the dashboard, but he doesn't listen. The officer then says, “Put your hands on the dashboard. It's the last time I'll tell you this. It's easy. He keeps moving his hands. "
The log states that the officer drew his gun while another officer approaches and Floyd says, “Open your mouth. Spit out what you've got. "

Floyd admitted that according to the protocol, there was a pill in his mouth. He is then removed from the vehicle when a third officer points a taser at him. Floyd replies, "I thought you were just playing."
Similar to the arrest that cost him his life, the footage from the body camera shows Floyd crying for his "mother".
Officers reportedly found a bag of pills in Floyd's pants. The footage shows Floyd being told to get into a police car and he then starts crying, but compiles and has a seat.
Earl Gray, Lane's attorney, wants the body cam footage to be admitted as evidence in court because he believes Floyd's behavior was similar to that on the day he was killed.
