Earlier this week, a video went viral showing him with his knee on Floyd’s neck for several minutes while other officers held him down. 

In a criminal complaint filed Friday afternoon, prosecutors wrote that Chauvin “had his knee on Mr. Floyd’s neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds. Two minutes and 53 seconds of this was after Mr. Floyd was “non-responsive.”

In the video, Floyd can be heard begging for Chauvin to remove his knee, pleading, “I can’t breathe.” 

If convicted of the state charges, Chauvin could face up to 25 years in prison on the third-degree murder charge and up to 10 years in prison on the second-degree manslaughter charge.
