DoJ Going After Chauvin For 2017 Arrest Of Teenager

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

The U.S. Justice Department (DOJ) is mulling whether to charge now-convicted former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin in connection with a 2017 incident in which he allegedly violently handled a 14-year-old boy and used his knee to hold the teenager down for almost 17 minutes, according to a report.

ABC News cited a source in reporting that Minnesota prosecutors had tried in the months leading up to Chauvin’s trial to include video evidence from at least one of his prior arrests, but the judge ultimately denied their request.

The Justice Department is now reportedly exploring whether to file charges against the ex-cop for the actions portrayed in the video.
