Derek Chauvin Suffered Serious Injuries After Being Stabbed By A Federal Prisoner

The event occurred at Federal Correctional Institution in Tucson, Arizona, according to a source with knowledge of the circumstances who spoke with the Associated Press.

Following Chauvin’s conviction in 2020 for Floyd’s murder, there were countrywide demonstrations that turned violent.

According to the Bureau of Prisons, there was an incident on Friday at around 12:30 p.m. at the jail. While the agency claimed that prison staff had contained the situation and given an inmate “life-saving measures,” it did not identify the individual as Chauvin.

The prisoner was brought to a nearby hospital for additional assessment and care, according to the Bureau of Prisons.

It has been around a year since the first incident at the prison. An attempt was made by a prisoner at the low-security camp in November 2022 to shoot a guest in the head, but the gun misfired.

Chauvin was given a 22.5-year term for second-degree murder at the state level and a 21-year federal sentence for federal civil rights violations. The prison sentence is being served simultaneously.

Chauvin’s attorney, Eric Nelson, stated in court filings from the previous year that his client ought to be isolated from other inmates.

The event occurs while Chauvin is attempting to reverse the federal civil rights conviction once more.

In a document filed earlier this month, Chauvin stated that if he had known about the theories of the Kansas pathologist with whom he is currently in communication, he would not have entered a guilty plea in 2021.

Without legal representation, the ex-police officer submitted the request.
