GEORGE Floyd was described as a ‘violent thug’ with a string of offences that he was even jailed for, it has been revealed.
Amid the worldwide protests over his tragic death, new shocking details have come to light of Floyd’s character, including violence towards women, robbery and drug offences.
Floyd moved to Minneapolis in 2014 after being released from a Texas jail and attempted to turn his life around.
MailOnline revealed that Floyd, 46 was arrested for aggravated robbery in 2007 and pleaded guilty to entering a woman’s home and pointing a gun at her stomach and searching the home for drugs and money, according to court records.
Floyd was also sentenced to 10 months in jail for drug offences after cops found one gram of cocaine in a December 2005 arrest.
He had previously been sentenced to eight months for the same offense, stemming from an October 2002 arrest.
Floyd was also arrested in 2002 for criminal trespassing and served 30 days in jail and he had another stint for a theft in August 1998.
All four cops involved in his arrest have been fired as outraged citizens across the country demand they be charged over the father-of-two’s death.
None of the officers could have been aware of Floyd’s more than a decade-old criminal history at the time of the arrest.
