Derek Chauvin held a teenager down prone for 17 minutes

Three years before George Floyd, records show Derek Chauvin hit a 14-year-old boy with a flashlight and pinned him down – with his knee on his back – for 17 minutes.


Even though there has already been a verdict in the state’s murder case against him, the investigation into Derek Chauvin’s past conduct isn’t over.

Now, the federal government is reviewing a case the jury never heard about.

Long before Chauvin held George Floyd down for more than nine minutes, police bodycam video shows he held someone else down for nearly twice that long.

Court records say it happened on September 4, 2017.

The person being held face-down – with Chauvin’s knee on his back – was a 14-year-old boy.

1. I hope they can use that to show a pattern of behavior

for sentencing. He needs to go away for 40 years.
