BREAKING: Chauvin Lawyer Plays Clip of George Floyd Allegedly Saying ‘I Ate Too Many Drugs’ (VIDEO)

The video clip was presented during cross examination of Los Angeles Police Sgt. Jody Stiger, a paid witness for the state, who claims that “no force should have been used” on Floyd.

Nelson went on to explain that the officers had to change tactics “when the futility of the three officers continuing their efforts forcibly to seat Floyd in the squad’s back seat became clear.”

The defense also played the clip of Floyd allegedly admitting to eating too many drugs. He added that the rowdy scene caused “a heightened sense of awareness” for the officers.

When asked if he could make out what Floyd was saying in the clip, Stiger said that he could not.

Nelson responded that “in the chaos of a situation, things can be missed.”

Floyd’s autopsy showed that he had consumed a fatal amount of methamphetamine and fentanyl.

“This is what’s called a Speedball – a mixture of an opioid and a stimulant,” Nelson said at the start of the trial. “The evidence will show that Mr. Floyd died of a cardiac arrhythmia that occurred a result of hypertension, his coronary disease, ingestion of methamphetamine and fentanyl, and the adrenaline flowing through his body.”
