Thomas Lane, one of four former Minneapolis police officers involved in the fatal arrest of George Floyd, has been released from jail after posting bond, according to Hennepin County Jail records.
Jail records show that Lane was booked into the jail on June 3 and released at 4:08 p.m. Wednesday after posting bail. The 37-year-old is facing charges of unintentional aiding and abetting 2nd-degree murder, and aiding and abetting 2nd-degree manslaughter.
Lane's bail was set at $750,000.
The criminal complaint states that former officer Derek Chauvin held his knee against Floyd's neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, even after another now-fired officer, J Alexander Kueng, said he couldn't find a pulse on him.
Lane and Kueng were spotted on video holding Floyd down by the lower half of his body while Chauvin was on his neck, while a fourth officer, Tou Thao, kept bystanders away from the scene of the arrest.
The only concern raised during the arrest, per the complaint, came from Lane, who asked Chauvin "should we roll him on his side?" When Chauvin said no, Lane replied: "I am worried about excited delirium or whatever."
The three other officers remain jailed, per official records.
