A disturbing new video is going viral today showing George Floyd struggling with officers in a squad car before he died in police custody last Monday.

The New York Post reported that the clip, which was posted to social media on Saturday by activist Shaun King, shows one Minneapolis cop leaning into the rear left passenger door, seemingly struggling with Floyd after his arrest for trying to use a fake $20 bill. Derek Chauvin, the ex-cop who infamously was caught on camera kneeling on Floyd’s neck, can be seen running around to the right side of the car as the video ends.

This was the exact spot where Floyd would later end up pinned by the neck by Chauvin for almost nine minutes.

“It’s all coming together. Police were in the car beating the s–t out of George Floyd,” King captioned the clip. “One stands watch, while the others attacked him.”

All four of the officers involved in Floyd’s arrest have since been fired, and Chauvin has been arrested and charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. Floyd’s family has since released a statement through their attorney saying that they “expected a first-degree murder charge.”

This comes after Andy Skoogman, Executive Director of the Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association, told Fox News that cellphone footage is a “game changer” when it comes to holding police officers accountable for their brutality.

“I’ve said this for many years; I’ve been in this position for six and a half years, I believe that cellphone videos, I believe that body-worn camera videos are game changers for law enforcement,” Skoogman said. “They weed out the bad apples and they can be used to show great things that police officers are doing. So video is definitely the key in this case as it is in so many other cases in this day and age.”

Skoogman went on to slam Chauvin for kneeling on Floyd’s neck.

“I think there’s a national narrative, or there had been last week, that police officers in Minnesota are being trained in the technique that Derek Chauvin used and that is simply not the case,” Skoogman said. “It is the furthest from the truth that that exists. We did condemn the actions of the officer, not only the technique used by Derek Chauvin but the lack of empathy shown by the other officers on the scene.”
