The city of Minneapolis agreed Thursday to pay approximately $8.9 million to settle two lawsuits involving former police officer Derek Chauvin, who was accused of killing George Floyd in 2020.

In the lawsuits, which stemmed from the 2017 arrests, two people alleged that Chauvin pressed his knee into their necks years before the same tactic proved fatal during Floyd’s arrest.
