(Minneapolis, MN) -- The man who was with the George Floyd on the night he died made a virtual appearance this (Tuesday) morning from jail before testimony in the Derek Chauvin trial. Morries (MOH'-rees) Hall invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination through his lawyer. That privilege would apply to any activities that took place on May 25th, 2020 before and after police arrived. Hall's attorney argued that without immunity, Hall would be open to future third-degree murder charges in Floyds death. Floyd's girlfriend testified that Hall provided George with the drugs weeks before Floyd died. Judge Pete Cahill is considering whether to allow Hall to testify on matters that would not be self-incriminating for Hall. Minneapolis police crisis intervention coordinator - Sergeant Ker Yang- testified this morning and Lieutenant Johnny Mercil is currently on the witness stand.
