Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was taken into custody after Floyd’s death, four days after he was knelt on his neck in a video about his arrest that led to violent protests across the country.

The 44-year-old white police officer was arrested by state investigators on Friday afternoon, John Harrington, public security commissioner reported.

Chauvin was one of four officers fired from Floyd’s death earlier this week, but Harrington did not provide details about the other three agents.

The state attorney who would oversee the prosecution of charges against the state, whose home was also the site of protests, is expected to provide an update later on Friday.

Protests over Floyd’s death have spread across the country, sparking riots in Minneapolis, where a police station was overrun and burned down on Thursday night.

It follows high-profile protests and riots in Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore in 2015, following the police-involved deaths of Michael Brown and Freddie Gray, respectively.

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz acknowledged on Friday that the response to this week’s violent protests “abject failed” and called for swift justice for the police involved in the death of George Floyd, a handcuffed black man begging for air as a white officer his neck.

Walz said the state would take over the response and that it is time to show respect and dignity to those who suffer.

Minneapolis and St. Paul are on fire. The fire is still smoldering in our streets. The ashes symbolize decades and generations of pain, of unheard of fear, “said Walz. “Now generations of pain are manifesting to the world – and the world is watching.”
