Ex-Cop Charged In George Floyd Death Confronted While Grocery Shopping

One of the four former Minneapolis cops charged in the murder of George Floyd was confronted by a fellow shopper during a recent supermarket trip and a video shared on Twitter shows run-in.

J. Alexander Keung, who was freed Friday on $750,000 bail, was stocking up at a Cub Foods in the Minneapolis suburb of Plymouth when another shopper started recording on her phone and moved in.

“What’s your name?” asked the woman as she approached Keung, 26, in the tense video posted by a user who identified the shopper as their sister. “Oh, yeah, that’s me,” replied the bearded Keung, appearing bewildered by the encounter, but calm.

“So you’re out of prison, and you’re comfortably shopping in Cub Foods, as if you didn’t do anything,” said the woman, as Keung stopped briefly to talk with her. “I wouldn’t call it ‘comfortably.’ I’d just say getting necessities,” answered Keung, holding a package of Oreos in his hands.

The woman continued to give Keung a piece of her mind as he and another unidentified man walked off towards the self-checkout line.

“I don’t think you should have that right. I don’t even think you should be out on bail,” she said. “I can understand that,” replied Keung. “I’m sorry you feel that way.”

Working just his third shift as a rookie cop, Keung helped restrain Mr. Floyd.
