Derek Chauvin trial live updates: Cashier who took George Floyd's counterfeit $20 bill felt 'disbelief and guilt'

MINNEAPOLIS — Jurors in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin on Wednesday heard from the cashier who took a counterfeit $20 bill from George Floyd the day he died.

Cup Foods employee Christopher Martin, 19, told jurors he told his manager he suspected the bill was fake and felt “disbelief and guilt” when Floyd was eventually taken away in an ambulance.

Over the last three days, jurors have heard from nine witnesses to Floyd’s death, and several have broken down in tears on the stand describing their attempts to intervene on his behalf. Tuesday’s witnesses included a firefighter, 911 dispatcher, a cashier working across the street, a mixed martial arts fighter, the teenager who recorded the now viral video of Floyd’s death and her 9-year-old cousin.
