"'Are you on something right now?' the police officer asked. 'No,' said George Floyd, but that wasn’t close to true."

As the media covered jury selection for the trial of former officer Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd, many are revisiting the details of the case.

During a segment on his Fox News show Wednesday night, Tucker Carlson examined the details of Floyds death from the Hennepin County medical examiner. Carlson wondered why a man with a list of priors like Floyd was acting strangely in police custody. By that point, Carlson theorized, Floyd should have been used to the procedure. Yet the officer noticed foam around Floyd’s mouth.

Carlson quoting the interaction said, "'Are you on something right now?' the police officer asked. 'No,' said George Floyd, but that wasn’t close to true."

Carlson expanded, "According to the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office he wasn’t simply high, he had a lethal dose of fentanyl in his system and he also had methamphetamines. The autopsy report showed he had 11 nanograms of fentanyl per millimeter of blood in his system when he was tested at the hospital."

"How much is that?" Carlson asked. "More than three times the amount of fentanyl required to kill a healthy person. Again, that’s not our judgment, that’s directly from the autopsy report, the one that people didn’t see it until after the riots."

Carlson then quoted the report, "signs associated with that include, 'upper respiratory repression, seizures, coma, and death. Fatalities from blood concentrations are variable and has been reported as low as 3 nanograms per milliliter of blood.'"

Carlson explained that "Nobody is denying this. The Floyd family’s own lawyer admits that it’s true," then quoted the lawyer who said, "'it’s true that the Hennepin County medical examiner’s autopsy showed that Floyd had fentanyl in his system’ he conceded. But then he insisted that George Floyd was killed by racism."

Carlson went on to read more information from the autopsy report. "In fact, the medical examiner, and you can read this online, found that George Floyd's heart on Memorial Day finally gave way. According to a press release from the medical examiner’s office his cause of death was 'pulmonary arrest complicating restraint and neck conditions. Contributing factors arthroscopic and hypertensive heart disease, fentanyl intoxication, recent methamphetamine use' and included that he was also infected with Covid."

"In August, …documents related to the autopsy were finally released in court," Carlson added. "One was detailing a conversation with prosecutor’s office had with Andrew Baker. Baker was the chief Hennepin County medical examiner. Baker told prosecutors that mister Floyd, had he been found dead in his home or anywhere else and there were no other contributing factors, we would conclude it was an overdose death."
