Minneapolis police chief Arradondo testifies

MINNEAPOLIS — Jurors returned to the courtroom Monday morning to hear more testimony from witnesses in the trial of former officer Derek Chauvin, charged with George Floyd’s murder.

Defense attorney Eric Nelson said police chief Medaria Arradondo will be called to the witness stand Monday. Arradondo is expected to testify about police training and tactics, but he will not be allowed to discuss Chauvin’s firing for the jurors.

Last week, jurors heard from 19 people including several who witnessed Floyd’s death and broke down in tears on the stand as they described their attempts to intervene on his behalf. Several Minneapolis police officers, including Chauvin’s supervisor at the time of Floyd’s death, testified about what they saw at the scene after Floyd was arrested, police training and the officers’ use of force on Floyd.
