Fired Minneapolis police officer Thomas Lane, one of 4 charged in George Floyd's death, posts bail and leaves jail
June 11, 2020
One of four fired Minneapolis police officers charged in the death of George Floyd posted cash bail and was released from jail Wednesday afternoon.
Thomas Lane, 37, who had been held in lieu of $750,000 bail, was freed shortly before 4:10 p.m. from the Hennepin County jail, a Sheriff's Office spokesman said.
A fundraising website on his behalf has since been taken down. The site solicited money through PayPal donations, while decrying the bail amount as unfairly high and also declaring that Lane "did everything he could" to save Floyd's life.
