Former cop's plan to testify could throw wrench into federal trial over George Floyd's death: Experts

Lane's lawyer, Earl Gray, said during his opening statement Monday in U.S. District Court in St. Paul, Minnesota, that the 38-year-old former Minneapolis police officer plans to take the witness stand in the high-profile case.
