JUST IN: Fired Minneapolis Officer Derek Chauvin Taken Into Custody By State Authorities.

Derek Chauvin, the now-fired Minneapolis Police Department officer seen pinning George Floyd to the ground with a knee to his neck, has been arrested.

According to regional KMSP reporter Theo Keith, Chauvin was taken into custody by state authorities, though it was not immediately announced on what charges.

A separate report from TMZ said the other three officers—Tou Thao, Thomas Lane, and J. Alexander Kueng—had not been arrested, at least not yet.

George Floyd, who died on May 25, was seen in the widely shared footage repeatedly telling the officers—all of whom who were later fired—that he was unable to breathe as Chauvin held his knee down on his neck. As the national attention on the department’s handling of the public narrative surrounding Floyd’s death grew, reports confirmed that Chauvin had a history of conduct-related complaints.
