Defense attorney Eric Nelson, who is representing Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer charged with murdering George Floyd, hit at the prosecution during closing arguments on Monday for focusing heavily on the amount of time he used to pin Floyd to the ground during the arrest that preceded his death last year.

“The state has really focused on the 9 minutes and 29 seconds, 9 minutes and 29 seconds, 9 minutes and 29 seconds. It’s not the proper analysis because the 9 minutes and 29 seconds ignores the previous 15 minutes and 59 seconds. Completely disregards,” the attorney said during the trial on Monday afternoon.
