Earl Gray, the lawyer for Thomas Lane, one of the former Minneapolis police officers charged in the death of George Floyd, joined Chris Cuomo on CNN Monday night and made some surprising claims about the events surrounding Floyd’s death. In particular, Gray questioned whether the knee of ex-officer Derek Chauvin was actually on Floyd’s neck as he laid on the ground with two other officers, including Lane, on top of him. Gray claims it’s questionable, despite video clearly showing Chauvin’s knee on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes.

“Once they got control of him, where my client was on the feet of Mr. Floyd,” Gray said, “and Officer King was in the middle, on his waist, and Chauvin was on his shoulder or neck…” “Neck,” Cuomo interjected. “Well, that’s questionable, by the way,” Gray replied.
