19-year-old Christopher Martin was an employee at Cup foods on the day George Floyd died. He testified in court today that Floyd came in on the night of May 25th, 2020 and bought a pack of cigarettes. Martin inspected the $20 bill Floyd used to pay because it looked “fake.” Martin says Floyd’s friend had earlier passed a fake $20 in the store, and when Floyd passed a fake $20, Martin thought about not saying anything…

“The other person that had come in, it kind of seemed like he was trying to scheme, like he knew it was a fake bill and he was trying to get over, I thought that George didn’t really know it was a fake bill, so I thought I’d be doing him a favor.”

Martin says Floyd’s apparent death at the time left him in disbelief and feeling guilty that if he’d just not taken the fake $20 “this could’ve been avoided.”
