George Floyd Protests LIVE: Autopsy Shows Floyd Had Coronavirus Before Death; Second Nine Reporter Ambushed in London; Court Appearance for the Accused Police

A Florida police department has launched an internal investigation after a video surfaced on social media showing a Sarasota police officer kneeling on a man’s neck during an arrest.

In the nearly 90 second cellphone video taken by a bystander during the May 18 incident, three officers can be seen attempting to take a male individual into custody. One of the two officers is then seen kneeling on the head and neck of the man.

The man, who was arrested on a domestic violence/battery charge, is heard yelling “why am I being arrested?” as the officer kneels on him.
