    George Floyd's brother says he believes Derek Chauvin's motivation was 'personal'

    Philonise Floyd told lawmakers Wednesday he believes former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin’s motivation to hold his knee on his brother George Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes was “personal.” Floyd testified before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday morning in the Capitol about the need for police reform after his brother died at the hands of Minneapolis police on Memorial Day.

    “No, sir. I don’t really know why he did it,” Philonise Floyd answered in response to a question about the officer's motive for kneeling on his brother's neck for so long. “But personally, I think it was personal because they worked at the same place. So for him to do something like that, it had to be premeditated.”

    The testimony corroborates new details from a CBS News interview of a former coworker of George Floyd and Derek Chauvin who said that not only did the two know each other, but they had a history of friction.

    “They bumped heads ... It has a lot to do with Derek being extremely aggressive within the club with some of the patrons, which was an issue,” former co-worker David Pinney told CBS Evening News.
