The 37-year-old former Minneapolis police officer was freed from Hennepin County jail on Wednesday night, sheriff’s office records showed.
Floyd’s death set off worldwide protests with a call for an end to police violence against black citizens and for justice to be served to the four former Minneapolis officers involved in killing the 46-year-old black man.
Thomas Lane, who was released yesterday after posting bail of $750,000, was one of the three police officers charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter in Floyd’s death.
The fourth officer, Derek Chauvin, who was filmed pressing his knee into Floyd’s neck, has been charged with second-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. He has his bail set at $1.25m in first court appearance.
The other two officers charged with aiding and abetting in the crime, Tou Thao and J Alexander Kueng, are still in jail.
Meanwhile, George Floyd has been buried on Tuesday in a memorable funeral filled with family members, public figures and people who lost loved ones to police violence. They called for racial justice and honored his life.
