Surveillance video below published by Nypost does not appear to show George Floyd, who died after being pinned down by Minneapolis cops, resisting arrest — which police had claimed — in the moments before the deadly encounter.
Floyd, who is black, can be seen on footage from a nearby restaurant Monday complying with cops as he’s led from a vehicle, CBS News reported.
With his hands cuffed behind his back, he appears to be ordered to sit on the ground, which he does, video shows.
Police said they were responding to a report of a “forgery in progress” and were advised that the man appeared to be under the influence.
In viral cell phone footage, Floyd is seen pleading for air as white cop Derek Chauvin pins his knee on his throat.
“I cannot breathe! I cannot breathe!” Floyd yells in the clip taken by a bystander. “Don’t kill me!
The FBI and Minnesota state authorities are reportedly investigating the incident.
