Derek Chauvin, the former police officer who was filmed kneeling on Floyd’s neck until he lost consciousness and later died at a hospital on the 25th of May, has been released form prison.

Chauvin was later arrested and charged with second and third-degree murder and manslaughter and placed in a maximum-security prison in Oak Park Heights.

However Chauvin was released last Wednesday, 7th October, after paying the $1 million bond. Court records show Chauvin posted a non-cash bond guaranteed by the Allegheny Casualty Company. Sources also said that he contributed to some of bail payment himself.

The other 3 officers who were present at the time of the murder were charged of aiding and abetting second degree murder, and aiding and abetting second degree manslaughter, all paid a $750,000 bond and were released earlier this year.
