The cop, who was involved in Floyd's death, was released from jail on bail



Thomas Lane, one of four Minneapolis police officers involved in the death of George Floyd, has been released on bail.


Lane, 37, was released from the Hennepin County Jail at 5:08 p.m., on conditional bail of 50,000 750,000 (AU $ 1m). Wednesday, according to jail records.

His lawyer Earl Gray confirmed that Lane was released Wednesday afternoon after bail and told ABC News he had no comment at this time.

He is one of three officers charged with second-degree murder and Floyd's death, and is aiding and abetting second-degree murder.

Fourth Officer Derek Chauvin was arrested on camera while Floyd was beheaded when he called out "I can't suck," was charged with second-degree murder and did not enter a plea deal.

Four officers were fired after Floyd's murder.

Lane, a compelling rogue, was placed unconditionally at 1 million, but was released on 50,000 750,000 conditions. He is being monitored at the time of release, cannot carry a firearm and must not engage in law enforcement activities.

Lane's next hearing is scheduled for June 29, and his attorney, Gray Starr, told the Tribune that the dismissed police plan to file a motion to dismiss the charges against him.
