Surveillance video does not support police claims that George Floyd resisted arrest

  Surveillance video does not support police claims that George Floyd resisted arrest Surveillance video from outside a Minneapolis restaurant appears to contradict police claims that George Floyd resisted arrest before an officer knelt on his neck. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Floyd's death this week sparked protests across the country after video emerged that shows the 46-year-old black man handcuffed and on the ground saying, "I can't breathe," as a police officer holds him down with a knee on his neck.

A video circulating on social media appears to show a driver intentionally running over protesters at a rally for George Floyd in Denver.

In the video, a woman at the wheel of a black SUV drives through a crowd of protesters on the street. As one man hops on the hood, the car accelerates — and he falls off. The car then appears to turn to hit the lone man, who gets knocked down. The woman drives away, with protesters chasing the car on foot.

Clashes, fires near White House as protests escalate

  Clashes, fires near White House as protests escalate Protests near the White House escalated on Sunday amid the continued fallout from the killing of George Floyd, with images on social media showing multiple fires and scenes of rowdy crowds even as a citywide curfew grew closer. Sunday night saw the third straight day of protests in the nation's capital following the release of a video last week showing a white police officer in Minneapolis kneeling on the neck of the 46-year-old Floyd, an unarmed black man. Floyd died in police custody shortly after the video was taken.

Escobar explained that the man who hopped onto the hood did so in order to not get run over and hopped off as soon as he was able. It remains unclear whether the man was injured.

A representative from the Denver Police Department told USA TODAY that they are aware of the incident and are looking for the driver and victim.
