*George Floyd and Derek Chauvin, the ex-police officer charged for Floyd’s death, worked together at a nightclub and had a history of not getting along.
“It has a lot to do with Derek being extremely aggressive within the club with some [minority] patrons, which was an issue,” according to their former co-worker who was interviewed for a segment Wednesday on “CBS This Morning.”
The co-worker, David Penny, also said that the two once had a beef over paychecks. He said that at this particular club, Floyd worked inside and Chauvin was part of the security detail outside. When paychecks were handed out, they were given to the inside security detail, who were then tasked with handing the outside detail their checks.
In one instance, Chauvin took issue with how much he was being paid and inexplicably blamed Floyd. Chauvin basically blamed the messenger, when it was their manager who cuts the checks and should’ve been the sole focus of his anger.
