Derek Chauvin, the now-fired Minneapolis Police officer charged with second-degree murder in the death of George Floyd, worked in military police in the U.S. Army during his two years of active service, including a stint in Germany.

Chauvin's military background is among the details in a cache of personnel records released by the Minneapolis Police Department late Wednesday.

The heavily redacted files shed light on the four fired officers' varied work lives. The records were released just hours after Attorney General Keith Ellison's office upgraded Chauvin's charge to second-degree murder and formally charged the other three officers who failed to intervene with aiding and abetting murder. All four men remain jailed.
