Thomas Lane, one of the four Minneapolis police officers involved in the death of George Floyd, has been released from jail after posting bond.

 

Lane, 37, who had been held on $750,000 conditional bail, was freed from the Hennepin County jail at 5:08 p.m. Wednesday, according to jail records.

 

His family members had set up a fundraising page for the ex-cop earlier this week, asking the public for donations for his 'defense fund' they set at $1 million.

 

Lane's lawyer, Earl Gray, also confirmed he was released on Wednesday afternoon after posting bail. 

 

'Now we can watch what happens next from outside,' Gray told the Tribune. 'We will bring a motion to dismiss and hopefully it will be granted.'

 

Thomas Lane is one of three officers charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter in connection with the death of Floyd.
