Thomas Lane, one of the four former Minneapolis police officers involved in the death of George Floyd, has been released from Hennepin County Jail Wednesday afternoon after posting bond, according to jail records.
Lane was one of the officers — including Derek Chauvin, Tou Thao and J. Alexander Kueng — that responded to the call about the alleged use of a counterfeit $20 bill on Memorial Day at Cup Foods on East 38th Street and Chicago Avenue in south Minneapolis.
According to Lane’s attorney, Earl Gray, Floyd’s death marked Lane’s fourth day as a Minneapolis Police Officer. He said Lane questioned former officer Derek Chauvin’s tactics during the arrest of George Floyd. Lane is charged with aiding and abetting.
Lane’s next court appearance is set for June 29.
