“Derek Chauvin, the ex-Minneapolis police officer facing murder charges in George Floyd’s death, posted bond on $1 million bail Wednesday, court records indicate.
“”I can confirm he is no longer in our custody,” said Sarah Fitzgerald, spokeswoman for the Minnesota Department of Corrections.
“Chauvin was released from Oak Park Heights Correctional Facility, east of Minneapolis, just after 11 a.m., the Hennepin County Jail roster indicates.
“His release was conditional, according to records, though the specifics were not immediately available.
“His next court date is set for March 8, according to a notice of appearance.
“It’s not clear who paid the bail bond company, or how much. Minnesota law allows bondsmen to charge a maximum of 10% of the bail amount — in this case, up to $100,000.”
