Minneapolis Reaches Settlement With George Floyd Murder Witness

(Minneapolis, MN) — The City of Minneapolis has reached a settlement with a man who witnessed the murder of George Floyd. Donald Williams was at the scene of the crime back in May of 2020, and claims Derek Chauvin and another former Minneapolis police officer caused him emotional damage that amounted to assault. Williams filed a civil lawsuit last May claiming the officer’s actions “constituted a threat of bodily harm.” The Minneapolis City Council is expected to approve a settlement of 150-thousand dollars on Thursday. Mayor Jacob Frey will have seven days to either approve or veto the deal.
