Siting a source at Ramsey County Jail in St. Paul, MN — where Chauvin is detained, the media platform reported that Chauvin was taken in late afternoon Friday, and didn’t make eye contact with anyone upon his arrival, before the check-in process.

He has reportedly been kept in a single cell in a special wing of the facility for high-profile cases, in isolation and being watched constantly.

“There’s a camera in his cell watching him 24/7, as well as guards monitoring the feed 24/7. On top of that, he’s getting checked on in-person every 15 minutes,” TMZ reports.

The suicide watch is said to be a standard process for the section of jail in which he is being kept and he may not be suicidal.

Chauvin’s wife has allegedly filed for a divorce after his arrest.

Reports also claim that George Floyd and his killer cop, Derek Chauvin were co-workers at a club.
