“Come on, man. Oh, oh. I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe. Ah! They’ll kill me. They’ll kill me. I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe. Oh!” Floyd replied in response to Chauvin, according to the transcripts.
Minutes later, Floyd stopped responding and was later pronounced dead.
The authorities have not released the body camera footage and CNN has been unable to confirm the transcripts. CNN has approached the court and requested the videos mentioned in the application.
CNN has contacted a lawyer who represents the Floyd family.
All four officers were released.
Eric Nelson, a lawyer at Chauvin, declined to comment on the transcripts on Wednesday.
Before being forced into the ground, Floyd told officials that he could not breathe, saying that he had suffered from Covid-19 and was claustrophobic according to the transcripts.
Floyd was afraid when officers tried to put him in a patrol car, the transcripts in detail, and told the officers to “tell my kids I love them. I’m dead.”
Later, when Floyd was pinned to the ground, Lane Chauvin asked if the officials should pull Floyd to his side and, according to the transcripts, raised concerns about a possible medical emergency.
“No, it stays where we have it,” Chauvin replied, according to the transcript.
According to the request, Lane asked twice to put Floyd on his side. Chauvin, a training officer and 20-year-old veteran, told Lane to keep him there until the ambulance arrived, according to the request. Chauvin assured Lane that Floyd was fine and Lane could see no “visible deliberate infliction of harm,” the request said.
Lane’s lawyer, Gray, said in the motion that his client did not know that Chauvin had committed a crime while detaining Floyd. The lawyer said the decision to withhold Floyd was reasonably justified according to the request.
