As for specifics in the 2017 incident, a woman had called police for help after she said she was attacked by her 14-year-old son and daughter. When Chauvin arrived, he ordered the boy to get on the ground, and when he refused Chauvin allegedly hit him with a flashlight as he grabbed his throat. The now-former cop allegedly used a neck restraint that he held for so long the teen lost consciousness. The prosecutor who reviewed the video says 8 minutes in Chauvin changed positions and put his knee on the teen’s back for another 9 minutes.
It’s unclear if the incident will result in another criminal prosecution.
