(LifeZette) Defense Attorney Eric J. Nelson, who is representing former Minneapolis police Officer Derek Chauvin, is now claiming that George Floyd died of a drug overdose, rather than in a police homicide.
Chauvin has been charged with Floyd’s murder which occurred as officers got into an altercation with him purportedly involving counterfeit money. Nelson has filed a motion asking a judge to dismiss all charges against Chauvin because he does not believe Floyd was murdered, according to ABC News.
In the motion, which was filed in Minnesota’s Hennepin County District Court on Friday, Nelson claimed that the prosecution has not shown probable cause in charging Chauvin with second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter. He claimed that his client carried out Floyd’s detainment by the book, including the use of a “Maximal Restraint Technique.”
