Prosecutors Introduce New George Floyd Surveillance Footage
Christopher Martin, a teenage store clerk, testified on Wednesday about his encounter with George Floyd using a fake $20 bill at the Cup Foods convenience store on May 25. The witness’s testimony introduced new surveillance footage of the scene and the events leading up to Mr. Floyd’s death.
“So going to May 25 of 2020, were you working on that day?” “Yes.” “And you know that’s the date that, you know, the incident occurred that brings you to court today, correct?” “Yes.” “Let’s just keep going here for a little bit. Did you actually interact with him in the store?” “I did have one conversation with him.” “And just that, what was said, but what was the conversation generally about?” “It was about, I asked him if he played football or not, asked him if he played baseball, and he said he played football.” “Were you able to understand the conversation with him at that point?” “Yes.” “OK, so let’s keep rolling then, please. Did you think that bill might not be legitimate?” “I did.” “So what did you decide to do?” “I took it anyways, and I was planning to just put it on my tab until I second-guessed myself. And as you can see in the video, I kept examining it. And then I eventually told my manager.”
