George Floyd and Derek Chauvin “bumped heads” while working at the same nightclub, according to a former coworker confirmed by CBS News.

CBS News reported on new details from a nightclub coworker about the history between Floyd and Derek Chauvin.

Not only did Chauvin and Floyd know each other, but a former coworker says they had a history of “friction,” CBS reported.

Coworker David Pinney said the two men had a history and both worked security at a nightclub at the same time.

“They bumped heads,” Pinney said.

He continued, “It has a lot to do with Derek being extremely aggressive within the club with some of the patrons, which was an issue.”

“Is there any doubt in your mind that Derek Chauvin knew George Floyd?” CBS News asked Pinney.

“No. He knew him,” the coworker confirmed. “How well did he know him?” CBS News asked.

“I would say pretty well,” Pinney replied.

The Floyd family says they believe what happened on May 25 was in part personal.
